We have previously shown that chronic insulin treatment of rat hepatocytes increases the fraction of edited apolipoprotein B (apoB) mRNA from approximately 50% to as much as 90%. We have now examined the effect of insulin on apobec-1 mRNA abundance and demonstrate that increased editing of apoB mRNA following insulin treatment is accompanied by elevated apobec-1 mRNA levels in primary rat hepatocytes. Time-course measurements of the effects of insulin on apoB mRNA editing and apobec-1 mRNA abundance showed that both were elevated almost maximally within 48 hours and sustained for at least 5 days of insulin treatment.
