Interaction Information:

Comment Increased circulating FFA can result in decreased insulin sensitivity in skeletal muscle due to an increase in intracellular lipid products, including fatty acyl-CoA and ceramide. These lipid intermediates can activate the serine/threonine kinase, protein kinase C-theta (PKC-theta), which then inhibits the insulin signaling cascade.
