    Distinct Akt phosphorylation states are required for insulin regulated Glut4 and Glut1-mediated glucose uptake

    Muheeb Beg et al.
    Distinct phosphorylations of Akt determine the regulation of glucose uptake into fat and epithelial cells, revealing unexpected specialization in both Akt activation and its downstream control of glucose metabolism.
