Abstract Abstract. In order to better understand the mechanisms leading to insulin resis-tance, the number of fat tissue insulin receptors, their anity and insulin receptor protein in rats with monosodium glutamate-induced obesity were studied. Obese rats displayed signicantly lower number of insulin receptors with high anity. Sur-prisingly, the amount of insulin receptor protein was signicantly elevated in these animals. The same relations have been already reported for angiotensin II binding and AT1 receptor protein in the same model of obesity. Therefore we suggest an existence of general defect of adipocyte cell membrane in monosodium glutamate-induced obesity characterized by the presence of high quantity of impaired receptor protein.
