Figure 3: Amino acids mediate glucose uptake through adiponectin (A) AMPK activity was measured using SAMS peptide activity after amino acids exposure in cultured adipocytes with and without transient knockdown of adiponectin. (B) Glucose uptake was increased in the presence of amino acids whereas glucose entry into the cells was significantly decreased after silencing the adiponectin. *P <0.05 compared to cells treated with amino acid and without amino acids. #P <0.05 compared to cells treated with and without siRNA in the presence of amino acids.
