I understand insulin binds to a receptor on the cell wall that signals
inside the cell to summon one of the GLUT proteins that the glucose is
transported through, but what "turns off" the insulin after it has signaled
the GLUT protein? (Can someone send me a detailed diagram of the binding
and signaling process?)
