Previous studies have demonstrated differences in the size of insulin receptor subunits in brain and adipocytes that appear to involve variations in glycosylation of the proteins. In this report, we examined the degree of homology in the protein backbones of insulin receptors in both tissues by peptide mapping and compared the mRNAs encoding the receptors… CONTINUE READING
