Nutritional Recovery Promotes Hypothalamic Inflammation in Rats during Adulthood
AKT content and AKT phosphorylation in hypothalamus ((a) and (b)), liver ((c) and (d)), and skeletal muscle ((e) and (f)) of control (C), recovered (R), and low protein (LP) rats. AKT phosphorylation data represent the percentage of nonstimulated values. The rats were injected with saline (not shown) or insulin, and 45 s, 90 s, and 15 minutes later, liver, hind-limb skeletal muscle, and hypothalamus, respectively, were excised and homogenized as described in the Materials and Methods section. Data are presented as means ± SEM. Mean values with unlike superscript letters were significantly different (, LSD test).
