BACKGROUND Visfatin/PBEF/Nampt is an adipose-derived hormone proposed to exert insulin-mimicking effects and play a positive role in attenuating insulin resistance. However, the precise mechanisms underlying the beneficial effects of visfatin/PBEF/Nampt on insulin sensitivity remain unknown. METHOD Euglycemic-hyperinsulinemic clamps were used in the same groups of rats to study the in vivo effect of visfatin/PBEF/Nampt on insulin sensitivity and glucose/lipid metabolism before and after the… CONTINUE READING
