The insulin-sensitizing mechanism of myo-inositol is associated with AMPK activation and GLUT-4 expression in human endometrial cells exposed to a PCOS environment
(American Physiological Society, 2020)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is an endocrine-metabolic disorder characterized by hyperandrogenism and ovulatory dysfunction but also obesity and hyperinsulinemia. These characteristics induce an insulin-resistant state ...
Expression of MyoD, myogenin, myostatin and Hsp70 transcripts in chicken embryos submitted to mild cold or heat
(Elsevier B.V., 2003-05-01)
The expression of the MyoD, myogenin, myostatin and Hsp70 genes was estimated in chicken embryos submitted to mild cold (36 +/- 0.5degreesC) or heat (44 +/- 0.5degreesC) for 1 h. 2. Marked decreases in MyoD, myogenin and ...
Does alveolar soft-part sarcoma exhibit skeletal muscle differentiation? An immunocytochemical and biochemical study of myogenic regulatory protein expression
(Williams & Wilkins, 1996-05-01)
There has been persistent controversy regarding the nature of cell differentiation in alveolar soft-part sarcoma (ASPS) since its first description in 1952. Some studies suggest that ASPS might represent an unusual variant ...
Knockdown of Myo-Inositol transporter SMIT1 normalizes cholinergic and glutamatergic function in an immortalized cell line established from the cerebral cortex of a trisomy 16 fetal mouse, an animal model of human trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome)
The Na+/myo-inositol cotransporter (SMIT1) is overexpressed in human Down syndrome (DS) and in trisomy 16 fetal mice (Ts16), an animal model of the human condition. SMIT1 overexpression determines increased levels of ...
Myo1c binding to submembrane actin mediates insulin-induced tethering of GLUT4 vesicles
GLUT4-containing vesicles cycle between the plasma membrane and intracellular compartments. Insulin promotes GLUT4 exocytosis by regulating GLUT4 vesicle arrival at the cell periphery and its subsequent tethering, docking, ...
High final energy of gallium arsenide laser increases MyoD gene expression during the intermediate phase of muscle regeneration after cryoinjury in rats
The aim of this study was to determine the effects of gallium arsenide (GaAs) laser on IGF-I, MyoD, MAFbx, and TNF-α gene expression during the intermediate phase of muscle regeneration after cryoinjury 21 Wistar rats were ...
