Interaction Information:

Comment Expression of mRNAs encoding IL-6 and IL-1beta, the cytokines most induced in HFD and LIKK models, was reduced in salicylate-treated animals by more than 50%. Expression patterns for other genes that were coordinately upregulated by HFD or NF-kappaB activation (LIKK) were concordantly downregulated by salicylate, including genes encoding receptors (IL-8R and TLR-2) and signaling proteins (SOCS-1, SOCS-2 and SOCS-3). These findings indicate that salicylate improves systemic insulin sensitivity in LIKK mice through IKK-beta-NF-kappaB inhibition in liver but not in muscle.
