Prostaglandin synthesis inhibitors reverse alpha-adrenergic inhibition of acute insulin response to glucose.
TLDR
It is concluded that two prostaglandin synthesis inhibitors partially reverse the alpha-adrenergic inhibition of the AIR to glucose caused by Epi, without affecting other adrenergic events.
Facilitation by adenosine of the action of insulin on the accumulation of adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate, lipolysis, and glucose oxidation in isolated fat cells.
The modulation of insulin action by adenosine has been studied in lipid and glucose metabolism of isolated rat fat cells. When 20000 cells per ml were incubated, insulin failed to antagonize the
Effects of theophylline on insulin receptors and insulin action in the adipocyte
TLDR
The results suggest that theophylline impairs insulin action at a post-receptor level and, at higher concentrations, by a decrease of receptor binding, the reduction of insulin receptor affinity probably reflects ATP depletion of the adipocyte, and the xanthine inhibits glucose transport independently from its effects on lipolysis.
Studies on the antilipolytic effect of adenosine and related compounds in isolated fat cells
TLDR
It is tentatively suggested that adenosine may be involved in the physiological control of lipolysis and that this nucleoside has its site of action on the cell membrane.
