11 The Effect of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) on Red Cell Glucose Metabolism

Abstract

HGH has been found to inhibit glucose consumption in the intact erythrocyte and in hemolysates. The inhibition is dose dependent and species specific. Inhibition of glucose consumption is associated with a rise in red cell levels of glucose-6-phosphate and fructose-6-phosphate and with an increase in the % of the glucose metabolized via the pentose pathway… (More)
