Title: Glucose Transport


1
Glucose Transport
  • Ben Baker
  • Heidi Erchinger
  • Julia Sivakova
  • Chandler Keck

2
  • Speculate how intercellular movement is
    accomplished with GLUT4 transporters and why they
    exist.

3
Introduction
  • Cells need energy which they get in the form of
    ATP. The fuel for ATP production is glucose.
  • The role of insulin is to signal the cells that
    excess glucose is available
  • Facilitated Diffusion

4
GLUT4
5
Insulin Dependent
6
Insulin Independent
  • Insulin free
  • Fast response facilitated diffusion
  • Fight or Flight
  • Prime suspect is Calcium

7
Diabetes
  • Characterized by
  • Inadequate insulin secretion from beta cells in
    the pancreas
  • Reduce insulin receptor effectiveness
  • How can a diabetic get enough glucose into their
    muscle cells?
  • Exercise to recruit GLUT4
