Glucose uptake across the plasma membrane in animal cells plays a crucial role in whole-body glucose homeostasis. Insulin-stimulated glucose transport activity in vivo in several tissues was estimated using the 2-deoxy-D-[1-(3)H]glucose ([(3)H]2DG) uptake determination method. A tracer dose of [(3)H]2DG was injected intravenously into 8-day-old chicks (Gallus gallus) administered simultaneously or previously with porcine insulin (40 microg/kg BW). After 10 or 20 min, several major tissues… CONTINUE READING
