Inhibitory effect of hyperglycemia on insulin-induced Akt/protein kinase B activation in skeletal muscle.


To determine the molecular mechanism underlying hyperglycemia-induced insulin resistance in skeletal muscles, postreceptor insulin-signaling events were assessed in skeletal muscles of neonatally streptozotocin-treated diabetic rats. In isolated soleus muscle of the diabetic rats, insulin-stimulated 2-deoxyglucose uptake, glucose oxidation, and lactate… (More)
