MOLECULAR REGULATION OF MUSCLE GLUCOSE METABOLISM

In this study we are trying to find out why mitochondria and other proteins important to insulin signaling do not work well in muscle from people who are overweight or who have Type 2 Diabetes. Mitochondria are tiny bodies in all your cells that make energy and how insulin and exercise alter proteins that control energy production in skeletal muscle.
