Effect of insulin on transport of glucose and galactose into cells of rat muscle and brain.

Abstract

N THE PREVIOUS PAPER (3) it was shown I that insulin caused an accumulation of free glucose in the isolated rat diaphragm when incubated in high concentrations of glucose or at low temperature. These findings were interpreted to show that insulin accelerated a step prior to the hexokinase reaction involving the transfer of glucose into the muscle tissue. In… (More)
