Insulin Found to Control Cardiac Function Through Reactive Oxygen Species

November 15, 2017

A recent breakthrough by Dr. Thomas Michel of Harvard School of Medicine has shown that insulin impacts the body in a unique way.  The study, recently published in FRBM, unveiled an entirely unexpected mechanism whereby insulin-dependent generation of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in cardiac myocytes controls heart contractility and critical cell signaling pathways.  These research findings have direct implications for our understanding of diabetic cardiomyopathy, which is a major cause of morbidity and mortality for patients with diabetes.
