Research Article: BAD Modulates Counterregulatory Responses to Hypoglycemia and Protective Glucoprivic Feeding

Date Published: December 5, 2011 Publisher: Public Library of Science Author(s): Mayowa A. Osundiji, Marina L. Godes, Mark L. Evans, Nika N. Danial, Orian S. Shirihai. http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0028016 Abstract: Hypoglycemia or glucoprivation triggers protective hormonal counterregulatory and feeding responses to aid the restoration of normoglycemia. Increasing evidence suggests pertinent roles for the brain in sensing glucoprivation and … Continue reading

Research Article: Acute Hypoglycemia Induces Retinal Cell Death in Mouse

Date Published: June 27, 2011 Publisher: Public Library of Science Author(s): Martine Emery, Daniel F. Schorderet, Raphaël Roduit, Bob Lightowlers. http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0021586 Abstract: Glucose is the most important metabolic substrate of the retina and maintenance of normoglycemia is an essential challenge for diabetic patients. Glycemic excursions could lead to cardiovascular disease, nephropathy, neuropathy and retinopathy. A vast … Continue reading
