Insulin stimulates tyrosine phosphorylation of insulin receptor substrate 1 (IRS-1), which in turn binds to and activates phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI 3-kinase). In the present study, we have examined these processes in animal models of insulin-resistant and insulin-deficient diabetes mellitus. After in vivo insulin stimulation, there was a 60-80% decrease in IRS-1 phosphorylation in liver and muscle of the ob/ob mouse. There was no insulin stimulation of PI 3-kinase (85 kD subunit) association with IRS-1, and IRS-1-associated PI 3-kinase activity was reduced 90%. Insulin-stimulated total PI 3-kinase activity was also absent in both tissues of the ob/ob mouse. By contrast, in the streptozotocin diabetic rat, IRS-1 phosphorylation increased 50% in muscle, IRS-1-associated PI 3-kinase activity was increased two- to threefold in liver and muscle, and there was a 50% increase in the p85 associated with IRS-1 after insulin stimulation in muscle. In conclusion, (a) IRS-1-associated PI 3-kinase activity is differentially regulated in hyperinsulinemic and hypoinsulinemic diabetic states; (b) PI 3-kinase activation closely correlates with IRS-1 phosphorylation; and (c) reduced PI 3-kinase activity may play a role in the pathophysiology of insulin resistant diabetic states, such as that seen in the ob/ob mouse.

Usage data is cumulative from February 2022 through February 2023.
Usage information is collected from two different sources: this site (JCI) and Pubmed Central (PMC). JCI information (compiled daily) shows human readership based on methods we employ to screen out robotic usage. PMC information (aggregated monthly) is also similarly screened of robotic usage.
Various methods are used to distinguish robotic usage. For example, Google automatically scans articles to add to its search index and identifies itself as robotic; other services might not clearly identify themselves as robotic, or they are new or unknown as robotic. Because this activity can be misinterpreted as human readership, data may be re-processed periodically to reflect an improved understanding of robotic activity. Because of these factors, readers should consider usage information illustrative but subject to change.
