Sample text

Defects in this gene could lead to the impairment in glucose-induced insulin secretion which is present in lean elderly patients with diabetes. Evidence for mutations in this gene in elderly patients is con¯icting (Laakso et al 1995; McCarthy et al 1993). In skeletal muscle, insulin binds to its receptor, resulting in activation of the insulin receptor tyrosine kinase. Activation of this enzyme sets in motion a cascade of intracellular eventsÐat present incompletely understoodÐthat results in the translocation of glucose transporters to the cell surface.
