“My laboratory has used the VMMPC to conduct hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamps to test whether FGF21 is involved in the improved overall and tissue-specific insulin sensitivity adaptations to dietary methionine restriction. These studies required that mice be maintained on a custom diet upon arrival at the VMMPC. VMMPC was well equipped to accommodate the custom diet and the studies. Studies showed that FGF21 is a key mediator in linking sensing of the reduction in dietary methionine in the liver to its effects on insulin sensitivity. Our experiences with the VMMPC have been extremely positive.”

VMMPC is an invaluable resource to investigators around the country by providing detailed phenotypic characterization, complex instrumentation, and state of the art training to new investigators. As a user of the Vanderbilt MMPC on multiple occasions, I have benefited greatly from their services and have been quite pleased with the results and service we received.”
