Effect of human C-peptide on glucose transport in in vitro incubated human skeletal muscle

Abstract

Muscle specimens from the quadriceps femoris muscle were obtained from eight healthy subjects by means of an open muscle biopsy and prepared for in vitro incubation. C-peptide at 0.5, 1.0 and 2.5 nmol/l increased 3-0-methylglucose transport by 38% (NS), 64% (p<0.05), and 64 % (p<0.05) respectively. Glucose transport increased 1.8-fold in the presence of 0.3… (More)
