The effects of starvation for 1, 2 or 3 d and the administration of glucagon to fed rats on the kinetics of active glucose and galactose absorption across the distal ileum have been determined in vivo. Fasting caused reductions in 'apparent Kt' for glucose and galactose transport together with a decrease in Jmax for glucose but not galactose absorption… CONTINUE READING
