We report a counter-intuitive reversed order of peak values of protein phosphorylation in the early insulin signaling events in murine adipocytes. Using a conclusive modeling framework, we test different hypotheses and are able to draw non-trivial conclusions regarding possible mechanisms behind the reversed order of peaks. We also identify new differences between human and murine insulin signaling.
