Abstract

The possibility that insulin stimulates microvascular access for itself and glucose in muscle in vivo is discussed. The application of new techniques suggests that capillary recruitment is a normal part of insulin's action and that this process becomes impaired in insulin resistance. Exercise, which also leads to capillary recruitment, may involve a different mechanism than that used by insulin. Copyright © 2003 by Current Science Inc.
