NSILA-carrier protein abolishes the action of nonsuppressible insulin-like activity (NSILA-S) on perfused rat heart

C MeuliE R Froesch


Human serum in a concentration of 10% in the perfusion medium failed to increase glucose uptake by the isolated perfused rat heart, indicating that nonsuppressible insulin-like activity (NSILA) in whole serum was inactive in this system. When NSILA-carrier protein was added to partially purified NSILA-S, its biological activity on the rat heart disappeared. In contrast, the action of insulin was not affected by the presence of NSILA-carrier protein. Binding of 125I-labelled NSILA-S to rat heart was inhibited by NSILA-carrier protein. 125I-labelled insulin binding was not inhibited. These results support the hypothesis that NSILA-S bound to serum carrier protein is a large molecular compound which does not readily diffuse out of the capillary bed and therefore does not exert insulin-like effects in vivo.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
