Extract: Anoxia was produced in 34 mice less than 12 hr of age by exposure to N2 at 37° (Po2 less than 5 mm Hg). Although brain glucose levels fell from the normal value of 0.60 ± 0.14 mmol/kg to 0.22 ± 0.04 mmol/kg after 6 min of anoxia, in the livers of the same animals there was a fourfold increase in glucose concentration from 2.61 ± 0.28 mmol/kg to 10.45 ± 0.45. In 22 other animals of the same age plasma glucose levels increased from 3.04 ± 0.03 mm to 5.56 ± 1.09 mm during this interval of… CONTINUE READING
