The mechanisms regulating skeletal muscle glucose uptake during contraction remain poorly defined. Recent studies suggest reactive oxygen species may be an important signaling intermediate for the regulation of skeletal muscle glucose uptake during ex vivo contraction but less important during more physiological conditions, such as in situ muscle contraction in rodents and during exercise in humans.
