Regarding Insulin - choose the incorrect option :


( A ) Insulin causes rapid movement of glucose from blood to hepatocytes and adipocytes resulting in decreased blood glucose levels .
( B ) Insulin stimulates conversion of glycogen to glucose in the target cells.
( C ) Insulin acts mainly on hepatocytes and adipocytes.
( D ) Insulin enhances cellular glucose uptake and utilisation.

1 Answer

(B) is the right answer.

Insulin acts mainly on hepatocytes and adipocytes (cells of adipose tissue), and enhances cellular glucose uptake and utilisation. As a result, there is a rapid movement of glucose from blood to hepatocytes and adipocytes resulting in decreased blood glucose levels (hypoglycemia). Insulin also stimulates conversion of glucose to glycogen (glycogenesis) in the target cells.
