LP14676-8     Insulin

DESCRIPTION
  Part: Insulin
  Description: Insulin is a hormone secreted by the islet cells of the pancreas when an increase in blood glucose is detected. Insulin attaches to the insulin receptors on the surface of most of the cells. When insulin binds its receptor, other receptors are activated so that glucose is taken up by the cells. Intracellular glucose is used as a source of energy. Information from EndocrineWeb.com accessed 2008 08 18.
