The aim of the study was to elucidate the effect of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) administration in vivo (Escherichia coli endotoxin, 1 mg/kg body weight) on the expression and cellular activity of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH, EC 1.1.1.49), the rate-limiting enzyme of the hexose monophosphate shunt in hepatic cells. Under basal conditions, Kupffer… CONTINUE READING
