Regulation of Skeletal Muscle Anabolic Resistance in Obesity

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

PUBLIC HEALTH STATEMENT Obesity and type 2 diabetes are projected to continue to increase for the next three decades. A major site of insulin action and glucose metabolism is skeletal muscle, thus maintaining sensitivity to anabolic stimuli in skeletal muscle is paramount for overall health. The goal of the research proposed here is to reveal an innovative mechanism of anabolic action in skeletal muscle during obesity that could be targeted, resulting in new and innovative approaches to prevent and treat disorders exhibiting skeletal muscle anabolic resistance.
