Diabetes elicits cardiac metabolic stress involving impaired glucose uptake and metabolic substrate shifts. Diabetic cardiac pathology is well documented in human patients and experimental animal models to be characterized by diastolic dysfunction, but the underlying mechanisms are not well understood. Signaling disturbances involved in cardiac insulin resistance are linked to glucose handling abnormalities. Both reversible (e.g. O-GlcNAc) and irreversible (e.g. AGEs) glucose-modifications of… CONTINUE READING
