Although Watson and Crick made their landmark discovery over six decades ago, the revolution ushered in by that discovery is still underway, as seen by some of the major advances occurring since 1953. By the early 1960s, we knew much about the functions of RNA in gene expression, and the genetic code had been deciphered (see Chapters 24 and 25).

The fifth pillar is regeneration, the ability to compensate for the inevitable wear involved in maintaining a physical state far from equilibrium. For example, all of the proteins in a cell are subjected to continuous degradation, either because they suffer environmental damage or because, like digestive enzymes, they undergo degradation as part of their normal function. The ability to continuously replace damaged molecules of this type is a distinguishing characteristic of life. The sixth pillar is adaptability, the capacity of an organism for response to environmental changes.

3) leads to activation of two main proteins– pAKT, and Ras. Dephosphorylated PFK2/FBPase2 increases glycolysis while decreasing gluconeogenesis (see Chapter 12). These two activities of insulin (increased glucose transport into cells, and increased glucose utilization) result in an overall decrease in the levels of blood glucose. Insulin Insulin receptor Glucose pAKT activation has several cellular effects, one of which is the increased transport of the GLUT4 transporter onto the cell surface. GLUT4 Increased GLUT4 leads to increased uptake of glucose into the cells.
