The process of glucose entering the cell
Transcript of The process of glucose entering the cell
It causes cells in the liver, skeletal muscles, and fat tissues to take in glucose from the blood.
In the liver and skeletal muscles, glucose is stored as glycogon. Insulin Glucose travels through the bloodstream and prepares itself to enter cells. Insulin opens up the cell Insulin travels to the cell receptor. Here it sends a chain link reaction known as signal transduction cascade. The signal transduction cascade causes more glucose transport proteins (glut) to be present.
These glut open the membrane and allow a passage for glucose to enter the cell. Glut Recap 1. CareClub, Diabetes. "How Can Diabetes Affect the Digestion?" DiabetesCareClub.
