Abstract The effects of a 24-hr. fast on the activities of 15 hepatic enzymes of rats fed three different diets were studied. One was a stock diet devoid of free hexoses; the other two were fat-free and contained 60% glucose or fructose. Rats previously fed the stock diet exhibited changes in enzyme activities (glucose-6-phosphatase, glutamate-alanine transaminase, aldolase, and phosphoglyceraldehyde dehydrogenase) compatible with the development of increased gluconeogenesis and decreased… CONTINUE READING
