Abstract

A total of 138 middle and aged cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) (above 10 years) were classified into three groups based on fasting plasma glucose (FPG) values, specifically low FPG, normal FPG, and high FPG group. Total cholesterol (TCHO), triglycerides (TG), high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), and low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) were detected in blood by automatic biochemical analyzer. The mRNA expressions of 37 diabetes-associated genes were analyzed with Real-time PCRin monocytes isolated from monkey peripheral blood.No significant correlation between the four serum lipid indictors HDL-C, LDL-C, TCHO, TG and FPG (P> 0.05) were found. However, the expressions of ACE, ACLY, PRKCB1, SLC2A4, SNAP23, VAPA, IGF2BP2, and IFNG were significantly enhanced when FPG increased (P< 0.05).
