Triiodothyronine (T3) is found to stimulate cytochalasin B-inhibitable glucose transport in Clone 9 cells, a 'non-transformed' rat liver cell line. After an initial lag period of more than 3 h, glucose transport rate is significantly increased at 6 h and reaches more than 3-times the control rate at 24 h. The enhancement of glucose transport by T3 is due to an increase in transport Vmax and occurs in the absence of a change in either the Km for glucose transport (approximately 3 mM) or the Ki… CONTINUE READING
