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
these cells of the pancreas make somatostatin
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
insulin independent diabetes
these cells of the pancreas make glucagon
T/F: Acute hypoglycemia cause neurological problems, coma, and death because the brain is dependent upon glucose as a source of energy.
T/F: C peptide has no biological funtion.
Dr. Benting won the nobel prize for insulin in ____.
insulin dependent diabetes
acetylcholine acts to _____ insulin secretion
This protein is important for the activation of glucose transport and it is phophorylated by the B subunit of the insulin receptor.
The B subunit of the insulin receptor acts to bind and recognize insulin.
IRS mediates the translaocation of what glucose transporter to the cellular membrane?
How much oral glucose is administered during a glucose tolerance test? (grams)
T/F: An increase in sympathetic activity, increases production and synthesis of insulin.
persistent hyperglycemia causes perisistent _______.
insulin dependent transporter
What other 2 molecules can be found in mature insulin granules besides insulin?
Major targets of insulin include liver, _____ and _____
Blood glucose levels must be maintained at ___mg/ 100ml.

used as a measure of insulin secretion
production of glucose from non-carbohydrate sources
Normal blood glucose levels are ___mg/ dl
T/F: Norepinephrine and epinephrine act to inhibit insulin release.
Currently used in the treatment of diabetes and they act by binding to their G-protein coupled receptor to increase intracellular Ca activating insulin release.
T/F: Chronic hyperinsulinemia causes a downregulation of insulin receptors due to an imbalance of receptor internalization and recycling.
