PGC-1beta ASO: knockdown of expression of PGC-1beta using antisense ologonucleotides (ASO)

Interaction Information:

Comment PGC-1beta also induces mRNA expression of GLUT4 in cultures of primary rat skeletal muscle cells. In the present study, GLUT4 mRNA in WAT was decreased by 50% in PGC-1beta ASO-treated groups compared to wild-type mice. In contrast, the protein expression in both total tissue lysate and plasma membrane was increased 2-fold in only PGC-1beta ASO-treated high-fructose-fed rats, consistent with the result of 2-deoxyglucose uptake in WAT. There were no differences in the expression of other glucose transporters, GLUT1 and GLUT5 (known as a fructose transporter).
