Effect of fatty acid composition on insulin and IGF-I binding in retinoblastoma cells.


Receptors for insulin and other hormones are often influenced by their environment, including fatty acid content and membrane fluidity. Y79 retinoblastoma cells enriched with arachidonic or docosahexaenoic acid show an increase in membrane fluidity determined by fluorescence polarization using the plasma membrane-specific probe, trimethylammonium… (More)
