Insulin rapidly induces rat liver S14 gene transcription.


We evaluated the role insulin plays in the regulation of hepatic S14 gene transcription using the streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat model. Nuclear run-on activity and mRNAS14 levels were reduced by more than 85% in diabetic rats compared to those in intact animals. After the administration of insulin, both S14 run-on activity and mRNAS14 levels were… (More)
