Description

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.
