The simple theory of a dynamic diffusion barrier is described and it is shown how this could account for the accumulation, in adipocytes, of those free sugars which are also phosphorylated. The standing concentration gradient established by this mechanism depends on the recycling of free sugar and sugar phosphate in submembrane structures which start in… CONTINUE READING
