- ... Fucosylated chondroitin sulphate from sea cucumber can mitigate hyperglycaemia. However, the possible mechanism is unclear. We investigated the effects of fucosylated chondroitin sulphate from Acaudina molpadioides (Am-CHS) on glucose uptake and its mechanism using TNF-α-induced 3T3-L1 insulin resistant adipocytes. Results showed that Am-CHS could significantly increase glucose uptake and GLUT4 tr ...
