Endothelial plasma membrane is a glucocorticoid-regulated barrier for the uptake of glucose into the cell.


The effect of glucose concentrations and hormones on glucose consumption, lactate, pyruvate, sorbitol and fructose formation of porcine aortic endothelial cells and human umbilical vein endothelial cells has been investigated. Endothelial cells have a high glycolytic activity which is saturated far below physiologic blood glucose levels (KM apparent less… (More)
