- ... Apelin is an endogenous peptide hormone recently implicated in glucose homeostasis. However, whether apelin affects glucose uptake in myocardial tissue remains undetermined. In this study, we utilized in vivo, ex vivo and in vitro methods to study apelin's effect on myocardial glucose uptake. Pyroglutamated apelin-13 (2mg/kg/day) was administered to C57BL6/J mice for 7 days. In vivo myocardial glu ...
