The forgotten role of glucose effectiveness in the regulation of glucose tolerance
(Springer International Publishing AG, 2015)
Glucose effectiveness (SG) is the ability of glucose per se to stimulate its own uptake and to suppress its own production under basal/constant insulin concentrations. In an individual, glucose tolerance is a function of ...
Synergistic effect of glucose and prolactin on GLUT2 expression in cultured neonatal rat islets
We studied the synergistic effect of glucose and prolactin (PRL) on insulin secretion and GLUT2 expression in cultured neonatal rat islets. After 7 days in culture, basal insulin secretion (2.8 mM glucose) was similar in ...
Daytime variations in glucose tolerance in people with impaired glucose tolerance
To determine whether glucose tolerance varies throughout the day in people with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT). We studied 15 healthy IGT, and 18 matched normal glucose tolerant (NGT) individuals. Blood samples were taken ...
Thermodynamic and Kinetic Studies of Glucose Mutarotation by Using a Portable Personal Blood Glucose Meter
(Slovensko Kemijsko DrustvoLjubljana, 2009)
Glucose homoeostasis in rats exposed to acute intermittent hypoxia
Aim: Chronic exposure to intermittent hypoxia commonly induces the activation of sympathetic tonus and the disruption of glucose homoeostasis. However, the effects of exposure to acute intermittent hypoxia (AIH) on glucose ...
