Adipocyte expression of glucose transporter 1 and 4 in PCOS: Relationship to insulin‐mediated and noninsulin‐mediated whole‐body glucose uptake

Uche Ezeh, Ida Y-D Chen, Yen-Hao Chen, Ricardo Azziz



PCOS is a highly prevalent endocrine‐metabolic disorder associated with insulin resistance (IR). In IR states noninsulin‐mediated glucose uptake (NIMGU) may increase to compensate for declining insulin‐mediated glucose uptake (IMGU), although this does not appear to be the case in PCOS. The underlying molecular mechanisms for this deficiency remains unclear.
