Abstract:Background: CaMKIV has been identified as a potential regulator of skeletal muscle glucose metabolism and insulin gene expression in the pancreas. However, the mechanism of CaMKIV involved in adipose insulin resistance is not fully understood. Autophagy has to be shown as a potential therapeutic target for ER (endoplasmic reticulum) stress and insulin resistance. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of CaMKIV on the ER stress, autophagic function and insulin signaling in tunicamycin treated … Show more
