The stimulation of glucose uptake by insulin in muscle and adipose tissue requires translocation of the GLUT4 glucose transporter from intracellular storage sites to the cell surface. Activation of phosphatidylinositol-3-OH kinase (PI3K) is required for this trafficking event, but it is not sufficient to produce GLUT4 translocation. Human insulin resistance involves a defect in GLUT4 traffic and targeting leading to accumulation in a dense membrane compartment from which insulin is unable to recruit GLUT4 to the cell surface.
