Alcohol, Adipose Tissue and Lipid Dysregulation

Jennifer Steiner, Charles Lang
2017 Biomolecules  
Glucose tolerance of adipose tissue is also impaired by chronic alcohol due to decreased glucose transporter-4 availability at the membrane.  ...  Chronic alcohol consumption perturbs lipid metabolism as it increases adipose tissue lipolysis and leads to ectopic fat deposition within the liver and the development of alcoholic fatty liver disease.  ...  The full effect of alcohol on insulin-mediated glucose uptake also cannot be ascribed to the alcohol-mediated increase in G s α content at the membrane and cAMP accumulation that decrease glucose transporter  ...
