BACKGROUND Accumulating evidence indicates that Rho-associated kinase (ROCK) has been involved in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance and diabetes. However, little clinical evidence for ROCK activity in diabetic patients is available. We determined whether ROCK activity is systemically enhanced in type 2 diabetic patients and associated with other components of diabetes. METHODS Seventy-eight volunteers, including 41 type 2 diabetic patients and 37 control subjects, were participated in… CONTINUE READING
