From: L-Citrulline increases hepatic sensitivity to insulin by reducing the phosphorylation of serine 1101 in insulin receptor substrate-1

Effects of L-Cit on the phosphorylation of serine in IRS-1 in H4IIE cells. H4IIE cells were treated with L-Cit for 1 h and stimulated for 10mins with 0.1nM insulin. a Phosphorylation level of IRS1 at serine 307, (b) IRS1 at serine 612, (c) IRS1 at serine 1101. Data were expressed as the mean ± SEM of three independent experiments. Significant differences were identified by Tukey’s test, #p < 0.05 vs control, *p < 0.05 vs with insulin
