Involvement of bradykinin and nitric oxide in leptin-mediated glucose uptake in skeletal muscle.

Regulation of glucose metabolism in peripheral tissues by leptin has been highlighted recently, although its mechanism is unclear. In this study, we postulated that bradykinin and nitric oxide (NO) are involved in the effect of leptin-mediated glucose uptake in peripheral tissues and examined these possibilities. Injection of leptin (200 pg/mouse) into the… CONTINUE READING
