correlations behin this! This is "in o# ne$! There are a number o# rare mutations that occur in that %&T 'ene! (here you 'et loss o# #unction an yiel s e)treme insulin resistance! (hat you en up $ith is a sin'le point mutation that chan'es this 'lutamic aci to a lysine! *lutamic aci is ne'ati+ely char'e , lysine is positi+ely char'e ! That,s a si'ni#icant alteration in a protein sur#ace! This mutation occurs on $hat,s calle the plekstrin bin in' omain! -lec"strin is an a aptor protein that allo$s t$o proteins to bin to'ether! The mutation o# plec"strin allo$s proteins to bin to it constantly! .# it,s boun to plec"strin constantly, it,s 'oin' to bin to the "inase an allo$ it to interact $ith GLUT4 transporters, an recruit them to the membrane constantly! /o you,re 'oin' to ha+e *01T4 transporters in muscle an a ipose in the membrane constantly! They,re not suppose to be there, there only suppose to be there in times o# plenty! /o muscle an a ipose ta"e up all the 'lucose in the bloo an lea+e little #or the brain, $hite bloo cells, an re bloo cells! /o *01T4 is there all the time! 2uscle is constantly ta"in' 'lucose out! /o you 'o to be an your bloo 'lucose $hile you,re #astin' comes o$n, an normally $hat happens is the li+er ma"es more 'lucose to stabili3e 'lucose le+els o+er the ni'ht!

Slide 77: This is the crystalline structure o# the en3yme re uce to alpha helices an beta sheets! There are si) catalytic subunits, there are si) re'ulatory subunits! /o $hat happens here is $e,re only at physiolo'ical substrate concentration here! /o 2ichaelis-2enten 'i+es you the #alse sense o# security that you can 'o #rom small concentrations o# substrates to hu'e concentrations o# substrate in a li+in' cell!
