To study the diurnal variation and the effect of insulin on adiponectin multimers and nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-κB) activity in human endothelial cells.
Methods and results
We utilized a prolonged insulin–glucose infusion in six healthy human subjects. HMW and total adiponectin levels were higher in the morning and lower at night; NF-κB activities in serum treated human microvascular endothelial cells (HMEC-1) cells were lower in the morning and higher at night. Hyperinsulinemic induction significantly decreased HMW and total adiponectin levels but increased NF-κB activity in serum treated HMEC-1 cells (P < 0.05, P < 0.01). There were no significant changes to MMW and LMW adiponectin levels (P > 0.05).
Circadian rhythm of HMW adiponectin and NF-κB activity are altered by hyperinsulinemia providing novel insights adiponectin and NF-κB biology, which may be pertinent to insulin resistant states, e.g. obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
