When insulin is released, it acts to increase the absorption of glucose into skeletal muscle predominantly through which of the following transporters?
GLUT 4! It is found in adipose tissue and muscle, and mediates insulin-stimulated glucose uptake; in fact, it is the ONLY insulin-responsive glucose transporter. Insulin acts via its receptor to translocate GLUT4 to plasma membrane. Also stimulated by exercise through insulin-dependent pathway.

What happens to equilibrium constant (Kw) as temperature increases?
As temperature increases, Kw increases as well because the dissociation of water is an endothermic process. Heat is a reactant here, so increasing heat shifts the reaction to the right (forward) and Kw increases and pH decreases!
Where does the cerebellum originate from? What are some of its functions?
The cerebellum comes from the metencephalon (differentiated embryonic part of the hindbrain). It is responsible for skilled voluntary motor functions, balance, equilibrium, emotions, muscle memory, coordination of smooth body movements, and postural control.
