Elevated intramitochondrial adenine nucleotides and mitochondrial function.


Several groups of investigators have shown that treatment of rats with glucagon produces an increase in the adenine nucleotide content of hepatic mitochondria. It has been suggested that this enlarged pool of exchangeable nucleotides may be responsible for several of glucagon's stimulatory effects on mitochondrial functions by accelerating the transport of… (More)
