Effects of alanine on malate-aspartate shuttle in perfused livers from cold-exposed rats.


The role of glucocorticoids in the increase by cold-exposure of the effect of alanine on the malate-aspartate shuttle was studied in perfused rat liver. The capacity of the shuttle was evaluated by measurement of changes in both the rate of glucose production from sorbitol and the ratio of lactate to pyruvate during ethanol oxidation (Biomed. Res. 6, Suppl… (More)
