impaired glucose tolerance ( Uchida et al . 2011 ). TRPM5 channels are important constituents of Ca 2 + -activated cation current in β-cells. Correspondingly, reduced channel activity could be measured in β-cells of TRPM5-deficient mice ( Colsoul et al

hypothesize that BPA could influence PI3K/Akt signaling. The data of this study agrees well with previous studies that show that GPR30 knockout mice displayed impaired glucose tolerance, reduced body growth, and increased body weight ( Martensson et al . 2009

. Metabolic tests Glucose tolerance testing (GTT) was performed after the mice were fasted overnight. A total of 2 g/kg glucose was administrated through an ip injection, and blood glucose was measured at the indicated time points. Insulin tolerance testing

secretion is defective in the pre-diabetic stage of impaired glucose tolerance ( Hosker et al . 1989 , Tripathy et al . 2000 , Abdul-Ghani et al . 2006 ), and an absolute decompensation of β-cell function characterises the transition to mild diabetes

, several studies have suggested a link between the VEGF/VEGF-R2 pathway and insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance ( Elias et al . 2012 , Wada et al . 2010 ). In this study, we have investigated whether DC101, a VEGF-R2 blocking MAB ( Bocci et al

). When the RIP promoter was utilized to drive the expression of the mouse TCF7L2DN, the generated transgenic mouse lines showed impaired glucose tolerance and decreased insulin secretion, associated with a marked reduction of β-cell mass and decreased
