... colleagues from Harvard University report a novel approach
to interfere with translation of IRS-1 and IRS-2 specifically in the liver in order to determine the roles of these molecules in the metabolism of normal mice. Knockdown of both IRS-1 and IRS-2 led to symptoms of the metabolic syndrome, including in...
