Insulin Secretion and Membrane Transport

Here is an alternative LINK to this simulation.

Guiding Questions:

  • When glucose levels are high how do Beta cells transduce the signal to secrete insulin?

  • What are the types of membrane transport used to regulate insulin secretion?

  • How can manipulating the conditions be used to in the signaling transduction pathway?

Activity sheet to guide student inquiry: Beta Cell Claims

This simulation was built in collaboration with Bob Kuhn from Centennial High School in Roswell, Georgia.

Check out the activity doc that Mr. Kuhn made on insulin regulation: Beta Cell Phenomenon.
