T/F: Insulin's response to persistent hyperglycemia is characterized by a sharp initial increase in insulin secretion, then a fall and gradual rise in insulin (due to increase in i
T/F: 98% of the pancreas has endocrine function.
Major targets of insulin include liver, _____ and _____
T/F: Chronic hyperinsulinemia causes a downregulation of insulin receptors due to an imbalance of receptor internalization and recycling.
The liver degrades ___% of the insulin released.
T/F: An increase in sympathetic activity, increases production and synthesis of insulin.
T/F: Insulin is protein hormone and is synthesized from pro-insulin.
insulin dependent transporter
Blood glucose levels must be maintained at ___mg/ 100ml.
production of glucose from non-carbohydrate sources
persistent hyperglycemia causes perisistent _______.
T/F: Insulin receptor is a tyrosine kinase receptor thats acts to autophosphorylate itself.
insulin independent transporter
used as a measure of insulin secretion
T/F: Hepatocytes contain GLUT4 transporters.
low levels of glucose stimulates the release of _____.
This protein is important for the activation of glucose transport and it is phophorylated by the B subunit of the insulin receptor.
IRS mediates the translaocation of what glucose transporter to the cellular membrane?
T/F: Glucose enters the cell via active transport.
insulin dependent diabetes
The B subunit of the insulin receptor acts to bind and recognize insulin.
These drugs act on the ATP dependent K channel to activate insulin secretion
T/F: Acute hypoglycemia cause neurological problems, coma, and death because the brain is dependent upon glucose as a source of energy.

insulin independent diabetes
Dr. Benting won the nobel prize for insulin in ____.
T/F: Norepinephrine and epinephrine act to inhibit insulin release.
Normal blood glucose levels are ___mg/ dl
T/F: Influx of glucose in a hepatocyte activates glucokinase which increase ATP levels, activating ATP dependent K channel. This causes a depolarization of the cell causing an incr
