Estrogen prevents increased hepatic aquaporin-9 expression and glycerol uptake

Abstract

25 26 In starvation, glycerol is released from adipose tissue and serves as an important precursor for 27 hepatic gluconeogenesis. By unknown gender-specific mechanisms, women suppress the 28 endogenous glucose production better than men and respond to metabolic stress with higher plasma 29 glycerol levels. Hepatic glycerol uptake is facilitated by… (More)
