Insulin, in nature, has a stimulatory effect on microorganisms. These effects include the acceleration of sugar metabolism, triacylglycerol anabolism, growth rate, and formation of oils. We also observed that insulin may cause indirect activation of triacylglycerol lipase by forcing the cell to permanently require an energy source. Thus, cells can consume all of their accumulated internal fuel sources such as lipids, proteins, and carbohydrates. After studying the effects of using two types of… CONTINUE READING
