The effect of insulin on the kinetics of pentose permeation of the rat heart.

1. The kinetics of permeation of pentoses into the rat heart in the presence of insulin are similar in nature to those in the absence of insulin.2. The half-saturation concentration of the carrier system is increased by insulin in a manner which is independent of insulin concentration.3. The V(max) of the carrier system is altered by insulin in a graded… CONTINUE READING
