Default question about insulin

I'm putting my question out here since there are a lot of you on this forum with great knowledge.
I think that I've heard/read somewhere that insulin have other functions in the body as well in addition to lowering your blood sugar. Could someone please tell me what these are or if I've got this wrong?
I've tried googling it but haven't found much, just a little bit about amino acids. Something else I came across though, and I found rather interesting, is that various food can affect the insulin response in the body without affecting the bg level accordingly - in my mind this implies that insulin does have more than one job to do.

Funny how sometimes the most obvious place to start looking escapes you..
Thx David, had a quick peek and it looks promising. Will read it more thoroughly tonight when I have more time - will doubtlessly be back with several more questions after that
