In vivo response to alpha(1)-adrenoreceptor stimulation in human white adipose tissue.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Recent studies in rats suggest an important effect of alpha(1)-adrenoreceptor stimulation on glucose uptake in white adipocytes. It is not known if alpha(1)-adrenoreceptor stimulation elicits similar metabolic effects in humans. RESEARCH METHODS AND PROCEDURES Three microdialysis catheters in abdominal subcutaneous adipose tissue were perfused… (More)
