Reduced pancreatic β-cell mass is associated with decreased FoxO1 and Erk1/2 protein phosphorylation in low-protein malnourished rats
(Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, 2009-10-01) [Artigo]
A low-protein diet leads to functional and structural pancreatic islet alterations, including islet hypotrophy. Insulin-signaling pathways are involved in several adaptive responses by pancreatic islets. We determined the ...

(Medicina, 2014) [Artigo]
Introdução: A adoção de um estilo de vida ativo através da prática da caminhada é altamente recomen-dada pelos profissionais de saúde com o intuito de evitar, minimizar ou reverter diversos agravos desaúde que podem ...
Insulin signaling proteins in pancreatic islets of insulin-resistant rats induced by glucocorticoid
(Biological Research, 2011-01-01) [Artigo]
Chronic administration of glucocorticoids induces insulin resistance that is compensated by an increase in beta-cell function and mass. Since insulin signaling is involved in the control of beta-cell function and mass, we ...
Pancreatic islets from dexamethasone-treated rats show alterations in global gene expression and mitochondrial pathways
(General Physiology and Biophysics, 2012-03-01) [Artigo]
Chronic administration of glucocorticoids (GC) leads to characteristic features of type 2 diabetes in mammals. The main action of dexamethasone in target cells occurs through modulation of gene expression, although the ...
Exercise training prevents hyperinsulinemia, muscular glycogen loss and muscle atrophy induced by dexamethasone treatment
(European Journal of Applied Physiology, 2010-03-01) [Artigo]
This study investigated whether exercise training could prevent the negative side effects of dexamethasone. Rats underwent a training period and were either submitted to a running protocol (60% physical capacity, 5 days/week ...
