Interaction Information:

Comment Stimulation of cells by advanced glycation end products (AGE)-albumin, but not by high levels of glucose, led to a sharp increase of RAGE expression. The simultaneous incubation of cells with AGE-albumin and metformin inhibited such increase in the receptor expression in a concentration-dependent manner.
