Identification of Caveolar Proteins Regulating Insulin-Stimulated Glut4 Translocation in AdipocytesRecipient:Dr Luke Chamberlain / Dr Declan JamesInstitution:University of GlasgowCity:GlasgowAmount:£106,456Description: Work by Dr Luke Chamberlain (University of Glasgow) has implicated ‘lipid rafts’, specialised domains present within the cell membrane, as important regulators of insulin-stimulated glucose uptake by fat cells. This exciting research suggests the possibility that changes in the composition of the cell membrane of fat cells may have marked effects on insulin action.
