[Effects of experimental hyperammonemia on the secretion of insulin and glucagon in the rat].

Abstract

In order to investigate the controverted effect of ammonia on insulin and glucagon secretion 3 groups of 55 rats were perfused either by Na+ acetate (controls), either by NH4+ acetate: in the first group plasma insulin (IRI) and glucagon (IRG) levels were compared before and after perfusion; the second group was supplemented by glucose perfusion (1 g/100 g… (More)
