Effects on Insulin on Fatty Acid Metabolic Pathways

BIOCHM-MW4FIU

Diabetes is a particularly pernicious disease that results from the body either failing to make insulin or failing to respond to insulin signaling. As insulin partakes in the regulation of many metabolic pathways, failure to respond to insulin leads to a variety of health effects.

In the case of fatty acid metabolism, which of the following statements is INCORRECT when there is a lack of response to insulin signaling, as in diabetes mellitus?

A

There is an increase in lipolysis.

B

Fatty acid oxidation is stimulated.

C

Fatty acids are not synthesized.

D

Triacylglycerol synthesis is stimulated.

E

Ketone bodies are more likely to be produced.
