However, it remains unclear whether estrogens alone or progestins alone can cause insulin downregulated with high concentrations of 17- resistance, or whether it is only a combination β-estradiol, thus these high hormone plasma levels could favour insulin resistance in Insulin action begins upon its binding to its cell peripheral tissues. The role of 17-β-estradiol surface receptor [6, 7]. The discovery of seems to modulate insulin receptor substrate 1 tyrosine kinase activity in the insulin receptor JOP.

Insulin receptor On the other hand, the possible contribution of substrate 1 (IRS-1) is considered the major estradiol to the degradation pathway of IRS-1 is substrate for the insulin receptor, and contains not sufficiently known, but the identification of motifs that, after tyrosine phosphorylation, are well-defined intermediates suggests that there binding sites for proteins containing Src may be a specific degradation pathway. Since homology (SH2) domains [9]. The association the role of IRS-1 is to act as a docking protein of some proteins (phosphatidylinositol 3´- which assembles a signaling complex, IRS-1 kinase: PI3-K, growth factor receptor-bound protein 2: Grb2, and tyrosine phosphatase SHP2) with IRS-1 permits their activation and the transmission of the insulin signal [10].

While the increase in IRS-1 expression generally mirroredthe increase in tyrosine phosphorylation, the Twelve-week-old virgin female Wistar rats authors could not rule out the possibility that (from the Biotery of the University of Oviedo) the increase in tyrosine phosphorylation of IRS- 1 results from a change in stoichiometry or the conditions of temperature (23±3 ºC) and sites of phosphorylation. Furthermore, there humidity (65±1%), with a regular lighting schedule of a 12 h light/dark cycle (08:00 am - 08:00 pm) were used.

We therefore propose that some of [19]. In the light of the present results our hypothesis is that, during early pregnancy, the metabolism during pregnancy can be focused peripheral "insulin sensitivity" (larger amount of IRS-1) together with high insulin plasma The novel finding of this study is that 17-β- levels (data not shown) could favour the storage estradiol seems to be responsible for controlling of energetic reserve in the adipose tissue, insulin sensitivity in females throughout gestation. In this sense, the present results adaptative changes are reversed. The decrease confirm those of a previous study [23], namely, in insulin plasma levels (data not shown) together with less insulin sensitivity in adipose estradiol is similar to that found in early tissue facilitate the lipolysis and the increase in pregnancy, IRS-1 is upregulated and the insulin sensitivity increases in the peripheral tissues observed at the end of pregnancy [20].

However, IRS-1 In relation to the EX10 and the EX100 groups, we can note that the higher doses of 17-β- concentration of this hormone is similar to that estradiol (EX100 group) significantly decreased found in late pregnancy, diminishing the insulin the amount of IRS-1 with respect to the E group sensitivity in peripheral tissues. We suggest, in in the liver and adipose tissue. However, in accordance with Lee et al. [12], that a low skeletal muscle, this fact only occurs at day 6 of concentration of 17-β-estradiol increases IRS-1 expression by a transcriptional mechanism hormone action seems to amplify the decrease because the IRS-1 promoter does have four in IRS-1 levels in the EX100 group, also with consensus half- estrogen response elements the exception of skeletal muscle. Similar results [24].
