NOX3-derived reactive oxygen species promote TNF-alpha-induced reductions in hepatocyte glycogen levels via a JNK pathway.


TNF-alpha-induced insulin resistance is associated with generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS). This study aims at defining the link between ROS production and hepatic insulin resistance. Treatment with TNF-alpha increased ROS generation through activating NADPH oxidase 3 (NOX3) in HepG2 hepatocytes. Down-regulation of NOX3 using siRNA prevented TNF… (More)
