Question description

1.  Insulin triggers a cascade of events and one of the pathways it activates results in the insertion of GLUT4 into the cell membrane that allows glucose into the cell.  One of the suggested mechanisms that might lead to one form of diabetes type 2 involves how the insulin signal is transduced to activate \ down regulate GLUT4.  How might this mechanism be suppressed in cells? Illustrate your answer with a simple figure. (15 points)
