Glucagon mainly acts upon the liver. Insulin acts in general upon all cells. Both also act upon the adipose tissue respectively stimulating (glucagon) and inhibiting (insulin) the use of fatty acids in the energetic metabolism (an alternate path of the energetic metabolism is activated when there is shortage of glucose).
