Molecular mechanism of GPCRs mediating metabolic responses – The role of adrenoceptors in glucose metabolism
thesisposted on 12.06.2019 by SAORI MUKAIDA
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Adrenoceptors, members of the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily, are involved in glucose metabolism, and adrenoceptor mediated glucose uptake occurs independently from insulin signalling pathway. In this thesis, we examined the mechanisms underlying increased glucose uptake following activation of adrenoceptors.
