Insulin and Glucagon

  • Mark A. Sperling

Abstract

Energy homeostasis requires the integration of nutrient fluxes via appropriate enzymes, the activity of which is modulated by substrates and hormones. Insulin and glucagon, which are produced by, respectively, the β- and α-cells of the pancreas, occupy a key role in this energy homeostasis.
