Insulin Effects on Glucose o Gets released by Beta Cells into blood when glucose above 80 mg/100 dl also released by amino acids o Attaches to insulin receptors in muscles tissues Grabs the glucose and brings it into muscle tissue, then cells # and sensitivity of insulin receptors is movement dependent stimulates synth of glycogen in muscles and liver glyc is polysaccharide of glucose, stores energy o Role in Adipose (Fat) Cells Transports glucose and fatty acids into the cells Stimulates synthesis lipoprotein lipase This lipase transports triglycerides into the cell
