Corticosterone suppresses insulin- and NO-stimulated muscle glucose uptake in broiler chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus).


We evaluated the effects of stress as mimicked by corticosterone (CORT) administration on the uptake of glucose by skeletal muscles (M. fibularis longus) in broiler chickens (Gallus gallus domesticus). The results showed that both chronic (7 d) and short-term (3 h) CORT administration resulted in hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia. Plasma level of nitric… (More)
