Endothelin-1 (ET-1) can stimulate insulin-responsive glucose transporter (GLUT4) translocation in 3T3-L1 adipocytes (Wu-Wong, J. R., Berg, C. E., Wang, J., Chiou, W. J., and Fissel, B. (1999) J. Biol. Chem. 274, 8103-8110), and in the current study, we have evaluated the signaling pathway leading to this response. First, we inhibited endogenous Galpha(q/11) function by single-cell microinjection using anti-Galpha(q/11) antibody or RGS2 protein (a GTPase activating protein for Galpha(q… CONTINUE READING
