In this study, we evaluated the antidiabetic effect of submerged culture of Ceriporia lacerata mycelium (CL01) on glucose uptake and the expression of mRNA and protein of major signal markers of insulin signaling pathway in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. After 3T3-L1 adipocytes were pre-treated by CL01 (0, 2, 10 mg/ml) for 8 hours, followed with treatment of insulin, the glucose uptake levels significantly increased by more 55.1%, 94.4% than negative control respectively (p<0.01, 0.001) in a dose-dependent manner. However, in case of CL01 pre-treatment without insulin, the glucose uptake did not increase compared with insulin-treated 3T3-L1. Also we demonstrated that the protein expression levels of pIR β, pAkt, pPI3K and pAMPK and the mRNA expression levels of GLUT4 in adipocytes inducing insulin resistance increased in CL01-treated group compared with negative control. These results demonstrated that CL01 affected glucose metabolism and the protein and gene expression through insulin signaling pathway, and increased glucose uptake levels effectively. More than 90% of those who have suffered for type 2 diabetes are more likely to have from hyperinsulinemia, hypertension, obesity and etc. because of altered insulin signaling pathway. So, it is probably considered that intake of CL01 may treat type 2 diabetes by normalization of insulin signaling pathway, and it will provide useful evidences regarding a mechanism for cure of type 2 diabetes.
