How Modified Insulin and Red Blood Cells Regulate Blood Sugar
A new technique that uses modified insulin and red blood cells could help to create a glucose-responsive ''smart'' insulin delivery system, finds a new research study from North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The research team has also modified insulin by binding it to a glucose derivative which is called glucosamine; this could bind to glucose transporters on the surface of the red blood cells and would effectively attach the insulin to the red blood cell.
