Disruption of Disulfide Bonds of Insulin Receptor as a Cause of Insulin Resistance in DM2

Many theories have been put forward to explain insulin resistance in DM2. The cause of insulin resistance still remained an enigma till date. Defect in insulin signaling pathway is one such possibility considered for insulin resistance in DM2. For insulin signal transduction to occur downstream, the insulin receptor should be in tetrameric, holo-enzyme form so…
