  • Regulation of blood glucose levels
    • Glucose- C6H12O6
      • supplies energy to all living things
      • fall in blood glucose levels
        • detected in the islet of langerhans by a cells
        • Glucagon secreted by a cells
        • glycogen converted into glucose- glycogenesis
        • Lipids converted into glucose- glyconeogenesis
      • Rise in blood glucose levels
        • Detected by the Islet of Langerhans
        • Insulin secreted by B Cells
        • More blood glucose taken into cells such as liver and muscle cells - less in blood plasma
