Enabled us enabled us to show how SNAP23 insulin signal is disrupted, ‘says Professor Sven Olof Olofsson, Director of the Wallenberg Laboratory at the Sahlgrenska Academy. – the research project more advanced microscopy techniques, in the fat droplets cultivated to study muscle It became clear that the lipid droplets to each other within the cell by a process that fused a protein as ‘SNAP23 ‘known involved This protein has a different, independent function. That of the existence of the insulin signal into the cell.. ‘The incorrect storage of fat in the muscle cells interferes with the signal from the insulin, diabetes increased absorption of sugar from the cells, the fat is stored in the cells in the form of fat droplets, and we have investigated. Details such as these are formed and how they grow.
