Actions of Insulin on Electrical Potential Differences across Cell Membranes

  • Kenneth Zierler

Abstract

Electrical force is one of the basic forces of nature. It can be much stronger than gravity, as is its complementary force, magnetism. Magnetic and electrical forces act over distances; that is, there are fields of force. As in the schoolchild’s experiment in which iron filings sprinkled on a sheet of paper were made to show lines of magnetic force fields in response to a horseshoe magnet held beneath the paper, so electrical fields can be demonstrated to orient charged particles and dipoles within their territory.
