A mutation substituting a valine for phenylalanine at residue 382 in the insulin receptor alpha-subunit has been found in two sisters with a genetic form of extreme insulin resistance. This receptor mutation impairs the ability of the hormone to activate autophosphorylation of solubilized receptors and phosphorylation of substrates (Accili, D., Mosthaf, L.,(More)
The effect of adrenalectomy on basal and hormone-stimulated amino-acid transport in liver was investigated by measuring the uptake of alpha-aminoisobutyric acid in freshly isolated rat hepatocytes. Adrenalectomy resulted in a 50% decrease in the transport capacity of hepatocytes; this change was accounted for by a diminution in the Vmax of a low affinity(More)
