Abstract

One of the central features of insulin’s action on the liver is its ability to antagonize the actions of glucagon. Glucagon switches on glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis in the liver by raising intracellular cyclic A M P concentrations through stimulating the activity of adenylate cyclase. Insulin would appear to achieve its antagonistic effect by causing a decrease in the intracellular concentrations of cyclic A M P .
