A “permissive” effect of dexamethasone on the glucagon induction of amino acid transport in cultured hepatocytes


THE adrenal glucocorticoids have been shown to be involved in the regulation of cyclic AMP activated metabolic processes such as lipolysis1, glycogenolysis2 and gluconeogenesis3. The role of the glucocorticoids in the regulation of these processes has been termed “permissive”4 since it enables the maintenance of the normal responsiveness of cells to… (More)
