The Role of MKP-1 in Insulin-Induced Cardioprotection

The Role of MKP-1 in Insulin-Induced Cardioprotection Purpose The mitogen-activated protein kinase phosphatases the insulin-induced improvement in functional recovery, but (MKPs) are a family of dual-specificity phosphatases that in- reduced infarct size. Although the data suggest a role for this activate MAPKs by dephosphorylation. Impairment of MKP- phosphatase in insulin-induced cardioprotection, the multiple 1 expression in insulin resistance has been suggested to affect downstream effects of insulin hamper interpretation of the data the cardioprotective properties of insulin.
