Effects of epidermal growth factor on gluconeogenesis and cellular redox state do not require Na+/H+ exchange or Na+/K(+)-ATPase activities.


Epidermal growth factor (EGF) triggers rapid and delayed effects on gluconeogenesis, cytosolic (lactate/pyruvate ratio) and mitochondrial (3-hydroxybutyrate/acetoacetate ratio) redox states (Soler, C. and Soley, M., Biochem. J., 294 (1993) 865-872). This study attempts to determine whether the mechanism by which EGF modulates any of these parameters is… (More)
