Interaction Information:

Comment ANG II treatment of L6 myotubes induced NF-kappaB activation and TNF-alpha production and decreased insulin-stimulated Akt activation and GLUT-4 glucose transporter translocation to plasma membranes. These effects were markedly diminished by treatment of myotubes with valsartan, the antioxidant N-acetylcysteine, NADPH oxidase-inhibiting peptide (gp91 ds-tat), or NF-kappaB inhibitor (MG-132).
