Article title: Role of Grb10 in mTORC1-dependent regulation of insulin signaling and action in human skeletal muscle cells

Authors: Ashlin M. Edick, Olivia Auclair, Sergio A. Burgos

From the authors: “Based on these findings, we propose that mTORC1 controls PI3K/Akt signaling through modulation of insulin receptor abundance by Grb10. These findings have potential implications for obesity-linked insulin resistance, as well as clinical use of mTORC1 inhibitors.” 

This study is highlighted as one of February's "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
