We investigated the effect of insulin-like growth factor II (IGF-II) and insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 (IGFBP-1) on 3-O-methylglucose transport in incubated human skeletal muscle strips. Increasing physiological concentrations of IGF-II stimulated glucose transport in a dose-dependent manner. Glucose transport was maximally stimulated in the… CONTINUE READING
