Researcher group from Latvian Institute of Organic Synthesis have investigated the molecular mechanisms of cellular insulin resistance.
They discovered that long-chain acylcarnitines decrease phosphorylation of insulin receptor and protein kinase B, thus limiting the cellular response to insulin.
This research is published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences (IF = 4.56).
