  • Insulin sensitivity is dependent on a HISS (hepatic insulin sensitizing substance)-dependent component and on a HISS-independent component [1]. HISS sensitizes skeletal muscle to insulin. Its release is dependent on the activation of hepatic muscarinic receptors. Moreover, nitric oxide (NO) produced in the liver is a key regulator of HISS release [2]. We studied the ability of different NO donors to reverse HISS-dependent insulin resistance. Two NO donors with distinct chemistries were used… CONTINUE READING
