Exercise and insulin-mediated capillary recruitment in muscle


Rattigan, S and Wheatley, C and Richards, SM and Barrett, EJ and Clark, MG, Exercise and insulin-mediated capillary recruitment in muscle, Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews, 33, (1) pp. 43-48. ISSN 0091-6331 (2005) [Refereed Article]


Blood flow to contracting muscles is increased rapidly and is redistributed within the muscle. Recent research has highlighted that insulin causes similar changes, but these are absent in insulin resistance, restating in impaired insulin-mediated muscle glucose uptake. Understanding the mechanisms and interactions between contraction- and insulin-mediated alterations in blood flow within muscle may reveal new approaches to overcome insulin resistance.
