241. The Regulation of Insulin-Stimulated Cardiac Glucose Transport via Protein Acetylation (Full text)

The Regulation of Insulin-Stimulated Cardiac Glucose Transport via Protein Acetylation Cellular catabolism is the cell capacity to generate energy from various substrates to sustain its function. To optimize this energy production, cells are able to switch between various metabolic pathways in accordance to substrate availability via a modulation of several regulatory enzymes. This metabolic flexibility is essential for the healthy heart, an organ requiring large quantities of ATP to sustain (...) substrates induces an increase in acetylation levels of proteins which is concomitant to the perturbation of glucose transport. The purpose of the present review is to gather, in a synthetic model, the different evidences that demonstrate the role of acetylation in the inhibition of the insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in cardiac muscle.

245. Everolimus Directly Suppresses Insulin Secretion Independently of Cell Growth Inhibition (Full text)

Everolimus Directly Suppresses Insulin Secretion Independently of Cell Growth Inhibition Everolimus, an orally administered mammalian target of rapamycin inhibitor, has been widely used as an immunosuppressant and an anticancer agent. Whereas everolimus can control recurrent hypoglycemia in patients with insulinoma, possibly through tumor regression and/or the direct inhibition of insulin secretion, time-dependent changes in serum insulin levels caused by everolimus still remain unclear. Here (...) we report a clinical case of a patient with metastatic insulinoma, in which frequent monitoring of serum insulin levels demonstrated rapid and substantial changes in insulin secretion levels, a few days after the discontinuation as well as the readministration of everolimus. To further confirm the direct effect of everolimus on β-cell function, we performed in vitro experiments using mouse insulinoma cells (MIN6) and human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC)-derived insulin-producing cells

Phosphoinositide 3-Kinase Is Integral for the Acute Activity of Leptin and Insulin in Male Arcuate NPY/AgRP Neurons Neuropeptide Y (NPY)/Agouti-related protein (AgRP) neurons in the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus are part of a neuroendocrine feedback loop that regulates feeding behavior and glucose homeostasis. NPY/AgRP neurons sense peripheral signals (including the hormones leptin, insulin, and ghrelin) and integrate those signals with inputs from other brain regions. These inputs modify (...) both long-term changes in gene transcription and acute changes in the electrical activity of these neurons, leading to a coordinated response to maintain energy and glucose homeostasis. However, the mechanisms by which the hormones insulin and leptin acutely modify the electrical activity of these neurons remain unclear. In this study, we show that loss of the phosphoinositide 3-kinase catalytic subunits p110α and p110β in AgRP neurons abrogates the leptin- and insulin-induced inhibition of AgRP
