Unformatted text preview: upon movement role of insulin on adipose cells insulin attaches to insulin receptors transport glucose and fatty acids into the cell stimulates the synthesis of fat from glucose stimulates lipoprotein lipase(VLDL) carry lipid from liver in form of triglyceridelipoprotein lipase changes triglyceride to fatty acid blocks action of hormone sensitive lipase blocks sympathetic receptors number and sensitivity of insulin and sympathetic receptors is dependent upon size of the adipose cell effect of insulin in liver transports of glucose not insulin dependent like neural tissue stimulates synthesis of glycogen stimulates triglyceride synthesis stops the synthesis of glucose 17:21 17:21...
