Effects of varying levels of duodenal or midjejunal glucose and 2-deoxyglucose infusion on small intestinal disappearance and net portal glucose flux in steers.


Six crossbred steers (261 +/- 18 kg BW) fitted with hepatic portal, mesenteric venous and arterial catheters, and duodenal, midjejunal, and ileal cannulas were used in a replicated 3 x 3 Latin square design to determine the effect of varying levels and site of glucose plus 2-deoxyglucose (2DG) infusion on net portal-drained visceral flux. Steers were fed… (More)
