Activation of mTOR, p70S6K and S6 during the postprandial period in human skeletal muscle. Phosphorylation is normalised to the total content of each protein and expressed in arbitrary units. mTOR (Ser2448) (A), p70S6K (Thr389) (B), and (C) rps6 (Ser240/244) phosphorylation are shown of healthy control and metabolic syndrome (MetS) subjects following consumption of a high fat soy or dairy breakfast. The graphs represent mean values ± SEM; n = 10 per group. ‡ = Significant difference between the dairy and soy conditions irrespective of group P < 0.05. * = Significant main effect for time, different than baseline irrespective of group or meal P < 0.05.
