Stevia rebaudiana (SR), Stevioside (SVS), Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha and Gamma (PPARα and PPARγ), Streptozotocin (STZ).
The down regulation of PPARα and PPARγ at m-RNAs expression level is responsible for β-cell dysfunction and insulin secretion seen in diabetic mice. PPAR α is found primarily in the liver and regulates genes involved with fatty acid utilization. PPARγ is an important regulator of adipocyte differentiation and function. Expression of the insulin sensitive glucose transporter, GLUT4, and the UCPs are also influenced by PPARγ. The current investigation focuses on expression of m-RNA at PPARα and PPARγ receptors and the islet β-cells dysfunction in Stevia rebaudiana (SR) treated diabetic mice.
