Abstract: We have examined the insulin-stimulated IRS-2 association with PI 3-kinase and the phosphorylation of AKT/PKB, which is functionally located downstream of the PI 3-kinase, in aged (obese) rats. The IRS-2 protein levels were similar in 2 and 20 month-old rats in both tissues, liver and muscle. There were reductions in insulin-induced IRS-2 tyrosine phosphorylation in liver and muscle, accompanied by a decrease in IRS-2/PI 3-kinase association and in AKT/PKB phosphorylation only in muscle tissue of aged rats. This regulation may be important in the altered glucose metabolism observed in aged (obese) rats.
