Insulin resistance in skeletal muscle is a common characteristic of diabetic patients. It was recently demonstrated a strong association between ATM deficiency and oxidative stress , a favorable condition for the development of neurodegenerative, metabolic and oncogenic diseases. Under oxidative stress state, the transcription of PGC1-± is downregulated, increasing evidence that activat...
There are several situations in which insulin resistance is common, such as obesity and type 2 Diabetes mellitus. In these situations it is also observed increased free fatty acid (FA) in plasma and for this reason, it has been postulated its involvement in the establishment of resistance. However, the mechanisms involved are not completely known. Recent studies are suggestive that the ...
