The serine protease, dipeptidyl peptidase IV as a myokine: dietary protein and exercise mimetics as a stimulus for transcription and release

Abstract

Dipeptidyl-peptidase IV (DPP-IV) is an enzyme with numerous roles within the body, mostly related to regulating energy metabolism. DPP-IV is also a myokine, but the stimulus for its release is poorly understood. We investigated the transcription and release of DPP-IV from skeletal muscle in a three-part study using C2C12 myotube cultures, an acute rat… (More)
