Epinephrine controls many important and sometimes opposite processes. This pleiotropic effect is achieved via coupling to different receptor/effector systems. In epididymal white adipose tissue (EWAT) of Wistar rats, we showed that epinephrine stimulated protein kinase B (PKB) phosphorylation on Ser(473). Epinephrine further increased the glucose incorporation into glyceride-glycerol without decreasing glucose availability for other metabolic pathways (i.e. lactate production).
