|Title:||Regulation of insulin-stimulated tyrosine phosphorylation of Shc and Shc/Grb2 association in liver, muscle, and adipose tissue of epinephrine- and streptozotocin-treated rats|
|Abstract:||Shc protein phosphorylation has been extensively characterized as the initial step that activates a complex mitogenic pathway through its association with Grh2. In the present study, we investigated the adrenergic control of insulin-induced She phosphorylation and Shc-Grb2 association, and the modulating effect of streptozotocin-induced diabetes mellitus on She phosphorylation and Shc/Grb2 association. Acute treatment with epinephrine, which leads to a normoglycemic insulin-resistant state, does not affect insulin-induced She tyrosine phosphorylation or Shc-Grb2 association in liver, muscle, or fat. By contrast, a significant increase in insulin-induced She phosphorylation is observed in liver and muscle of rats treated with streptozotocin. The association of Shc/Grb2 is also increased in both tissues following insulin treatment, These data suggest that while epinephrine preserves the insulin/induced phosphorylation of She and the mitogenic pathway stimulated by Shc-Grb2 association, treatment with streptozotocin leads to a tissue-specific increase in the activity of the initial step that ultimately results in the activation of the Shc/Grb2 mitogenic pathway|
