Amino acid-induced impairment of insulin sensitivity in healthy and obese rats is reversible
(Physiological Reports, 2014-07-04)
High-protein diets (HPDs) promote weight loss but other studies implicate these diets and their constituent amino acids (AAs) in insulin resistance. We hypothesized that AA-induced insulin resistance is a temporal and ...
Depletion of Branched-Chain Aminotransferase 2 (BCAT2) Enzyme Impairs Myoblast 3 Survival and Myotube Formation
Much is known about the positive effects of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) in regulating muscle protein metabolism. Comparatively much less is known about the effects of these amino acids and their metabolites in ...
