Project Description

Type 2 diabetes is characterized by reduced sensitivity of the insulin receptor and by ß-cell dysfunction.We have identified a novel receptor, which modulates insulin receptor signaling. Our aim is to analyze the molecular mechanisms underlying this observation. My focus in this project is mainly on the intracellular trafficking of the receptor.
