    Objective: The insulin resistance syndrome is associated with atherosclerosis and cardiovascular events; however, the underlying mechanism of vascular dysfunction is unknown. The purpose of the current study was to assess endothelium- and smooth-muscle-mediated vasodilation in isolated coronary...

    Since endothelin production is stimulated in vitro by insulin, we performed this study to evaluate in vivo the relationships between endothelin and insulin plasma levels during a glucose load. We studied 28 subjects; 17 with normal glucose tolerance (NGT) and 11 with impaired glucose tolerance...

    The present study investigated the changes occurring in interstitial metabolite concentrations and blood flow in insulin-resistant human skeletal muscle during the post-exercise recovery period following a single 2-h bout of one-legged exercise. In addition, the effect of microdialysis perfusion...

    Diminished insulin action in the vasculature may contribute to the development of cardiovascular diseases in diabetes. We have studied insulin's effects on the phosphatidylinositol (PI) 3-kinase pathway in arterial smooth muscle cells (SMCs) and its inhibition by endothelin (ET)-1, a potent...

    Although cytoskeletal proteins such as myosin II are implicated in the control of insulin secretion, their precise role is poorly understood. In other secretory cells, myosin II is predominantly regulated via the phosphorylation of the regulatory light chains (RLC). The current study was aimed...
