Sesamin (SES) has the ameliorating effect on L02 hepatocyte model of insulin resistance induced by high glucose and high insulin, based on insulin receptor signaling pathway IRS/PI3K/Akt. Treatment with SES (200, 100μg/ml) increased glucose consumption, glucose uptake and the intracellular glycogen synthesis of L02 hepatocyte model of insulin resistance significantly. Moreover, treatment with SES promoted the gene and protein expression levels of insulin receptor (InsR) and the post-receptor associated proteins, such as insulin receptor substrate 1 (IRS1), insulin receptor substrate 2 (IRS2), PI3K (phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase), GLUT4 (glucose transporter 4) significantly, which were determined by RT-PCR and immunoblot analysis. In conclusion, SES has the ameliorating effect on L02 hepatocyte model of insulin resistance induced by high glucose/high insulin, which might be related to its effect on promoting expression of insulin receptor and its associated proteins of IRS-PI3K-Akt passway, and thus promoting insulin sensitivity.
