    Sammanfattning : Pancreatic β-cells sense the concentration of glucose in the systemic circulation through metabolism of the sugar molecule. Failure to correlate the blood sugar concentration to an appropriate metabolic signal disrupts the function of the β-cell as a controller of glucose homeostasis and may contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus.

    Sammanfattning : Background: Despite advances in the treatment of atherosclerosis, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. With the population getting older and more obese, the burden of cardiovascular disease may further increase. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Molecular regulators of glucose and lipid metabolism in skeletal muscle

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Författare :Sameer S Kulkarni; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Skeletal muscle is a primary site of insulin action and insulin-stimulated glucose transport and occupies a center stage in maintaining whole body glucose and lipid homeostasis. Another key feature of a healthy skeletal muscle is its ability to switch between utilization of lipids and glucose as fuel in response to feeding or fasting respectively. LÄS MER
