INSR

INSR

A gene on chromosome 19p13.3-p13.2 that encodes insulin receptor, the binding of insulin to which stimulates glucose uptake.

Molecular pathology
Defects of INSR cause Rabson-Mendenhall syndrome, leprechaunism and hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia type 5.

(6,7) Some researchers have categorized this epimerase downregulation as an "enzyme defect" associated with syndromes that display InsR. However, there are reasons to believe that this so-called defect may not simply represent a random genetic mutation but may be the result of evolutionary pressures for adaptation to variable food intake and survival, which selected genetic types more susceptible to developing lnsR.

It is well known that insulin and IGF-1 can cross activate each other's receptors (insulin receptor (InsR) and IGF1R) and that there is also significant crosstalk downstream to these receptors via the insulin receptor substrate proteins (IRS; Figure 1).
