Differentiation of 3T3-L1 cells into adipocytes presupposes the expression of the glucose transporter isoform GLUT4 and the acquisition of insulin-dependent GLUT4 translocation from intracellular storage vesicles to plasma membrane. This ability to translocate GLUT4 depends on the presence of a set of proteins of the SNARE category that are essential in the fusion step. The expression and levels of some of these SNARE proteins are altered during 3T3-L1 differentiation. Levels of the v-SNARE… CONTINUE READING
