Insulin’s Role in Cell Survival and Stress Response and How it Affects Diabetics
Researchers and scientists at Buck Institute have discovered that insulin works on a much deeper cell level than originally thought. Insulin follows a pathway, which involves diabetes, aging and a person’s stress response.
Insulin’s Role in Cell Survival and Stress Response
“Using long-lived mutant worms, researchers demonstrated that increased tolerance to stress, due to lower insulin signaling, is not dependent on stress-induced responses at the level of transcription, but instead requires active protein translation.” Said Lithgow
What This New Information Means for Diabetics
If scientists and researchers can figure out how aging plays a role in the development of type 2 diabetes then they will have more ways to explore ways to prevent the onset of diabetes.
Researchers and scientists will also be studying what they already know about the signal pathway and how it affects diabetes and the role, it plays in cell survival and how a diabetic reacts to stress response.
