Certain thyronine-insulin analogues, which form non-covalent complexes with plasma proteins, have been shown to act preferentially in the liver. We hypothesized that this property may be dependent on the ability of the analogue to bind to the insulin receptor without prior dissociation from the binding protein. NaB1-L-thyroxyl-insulin, NaB1-3,3',5'-triiodothyronine-insulin, NaB1-D-thyroxyl-insulin and NaB1-L-thyroxyl-aminolauroyl-insulin were compared with insulin for their capacity to inhibit… 
Hepatoselectivity and the evolution of insulin
Hepatoselective insulin analogues have the potential to restore the normal hepatic to peripheral gradient in insulin action and the possible therapeutic potential that such analogues may have over currently available insulin preparations is discussed.
Insulin therapy: current alternatives.


Evidence concerning the mechanism of insulin-receptor interaction and the structure of the insulin receptor from biological properties of covalently linked insulin dimers.
The results suggest that dimers bind univalently to a bivalent insulin-receptor complex, in which the two individual binding subunits are arranged with anti-parallel symmetry and the mechanism by which insulin binds and initiates its biological responses requires a conformational change within the insulin- receptor complex and/or in the insulin molecule for full biological expression.
Novel hepatoselective insulin analog: studies with a covalently linked thyroxyl-insulin complex in humans.
When injected subcutaneously into normal human subjects, Bl-T4-Ins is well tolerated, quickly absorbed, and highly protein bound, resulting in a long plasma halflife, and has the potential to provide more physiological insulin action than the insulin preparations currently used.
Thyroxine uptake by perfused rat liver. No evidence for facilitation by five different thyroxine-binding proteins.
Findings indicate an absence of special cellular mechanisms that facilitate the hepatic uptake of T4 from its plasma binding proteins, and support the view that uptake occurs from the free T4 pool after spontaneous dissociation of T 4 from its binding proteins.
First-pass hepatic extraction and metabolic effects of insulin and insulin analogues.
Different patterns of hypoglycemia exhibited can be explained by the combined effects of altered distribution between the liver and peripheral tissues caused by differences in hepatic extraction, the effect of this phenomenon on the counterregulatory response, and the intrinsic biological potency of the analogues.
Novel hepatoselective insulin analogues: studies with covalently linked thyroxyl‐insulin complexes
It is suggested that insulin analogues which bind to thyroid hormone binding proteins retain access to hepatic insulin receptors which primarily control Ra, and the reduced peripheral insulin‐like effect (Rd) could be due to reduced transcapillary access to peripheral insulin receptor sites.
Dose-response characteristics for effects of insulin on production and utilization of glucose in man.
The above dose-response relationships indicate that in man glucose production is more sensitive to changes in plasma insulin concentration than is glucose utilization; both hepatic and peripheral tissues may contain "spare" insulin receptors; and relatively minor changes in Plasma insulin concentration or insulin receptor function can cause appreciable alterations in glucose metabolism.
Normalization of Lipoprotein Composition by Intraperitoneal Insulin in IDDM: Role of increased hepatic lipase activity
The increased activity of hepatic lipase after intraperitoneal insulin administration in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus appears to be one of the main determinants of lipoprotein changes observed, resulting in the normalization oflipoprotein composition during this mode of therapy.
Mechanism of protracted metabolic effects of fatty acid acylated insulin, NN304, in dogs: retention of NN304 by albumin
Aims/hypothesis. The provision of stable, reproducible basal insulin is crucial to diabetes management. This study in dogs examined the metabolic effects and interstitial fluid (ISF) profiles of
Evidence for Separate Handling In Vivo of Different Regions of the Insulin Molecule Using A14- and B1-labeled Insulin Tracers
B1-Monoiodoinsulin seems to behave more like native insulin than other preparations tested, and the reduced MCR of A14-monoiodeinsulin raises doubts about its validity as a tracer for insulin, according to the criterion of MCR.
