Interaction Information:

Comment Insulin-mediated 2-deoxyglucose (2-DG) uptake was substantially lower in Ren-2 rat soleus muscle compared with controls. However, Ren-2 rats treated with valsartan or tempol exhibited a significant increase in insulin-mediated 2-DG uptake compared with untreated transgenic animals.
