Interaction Information:

Comment In the insulin-resistant groups, the combined activities of AMPK-alpha1 and -alpha2 in the preclamp state were reduced compared with lean control subjects. When the level of phospho-AMPK was normalized to total AMPK protein levels, a similar trend was observed, but the decrease in phosphorylation of AMPK in the insulin-resistant groups was not statistically significant. After 3 months of rosiglitazone treatment in the type 2 diabetic patients, basal levels of AMPK activities were completely normalized, and the inhibitory effect of insulin on AMP kinase activity was largely restored.
