266 Gluconeogenesis by the Fetal Sheep Kidney

Abstract

We have consistently noted glucose release by the kidney of the unstressed fetal sheep, but it is not known whether this glucose is produced by gluconeogenesis or by glycogenolysis. To examine this question, we infused 14C-lactate intravenously into 5 healthy fetal sheep (mean gestational age 130 days) which had catheters chronically placed in the fetal… (More)
