## Figure 6.
Renal and hepatic insulin degradation. Left: Stationary insulin degradation rates of the liver (red) and the kidney (blue) and
the total insulin degradation rate (black) are shown as functions of insulin concentration.
Right: Stationary relative contributions of the liver (red) and the kidney (blue) to total
insulin degradation depend on the insulin concentration. Note that these fractions
are slightly lower in reality. Other tissues, in particular fat and muscle, also contribute
to insulin degradation but are not analyzed here. The fractions in this plot refer
to the sum of the degradation rates of liver and kidney.
