About the Cover

Insulin is a protein hormone. It plays very important role in glucose metabolism. This study was conducted to see the effect of insulin working as facilitating transporter for glucose in two types of cells i.e. a) Red blood cells (RBC) of normal individual were immobilized on the base (screen printed electrode) and b) RBC of IDDM were immobilized on the base (screen printed electrode).The response of both type of cells was seen on the instrument photoflurometer ,which obeyed bioassay principle with the estimation of insulin in terms of deflection. The Red blood cells inherent the enzyme machinery which results in the formation of NADPH. The results of both were significant i.e. p value less than 0.0001. The insulin levels of the screen printed electrode which were immobilized with the RBC of IDDM patients were lower as compared to the RBC of normal individuals which significantly relates the role of insulin as facilitating transporter of glucose.
