Futile substrate cycles in the glycolytic pathway of boar and rat spermatozoa and the effect of alpha-chlorohydrin.

Abstract

In boar spermatozoa incubated with 0.1 mM-glucose about 20 nmol glucose were converted to lactate and CO2 and the rate of futile substrate cycling between glucose and glucose 6-phosphate was about 6 nmol/10(8) spermatozoa/30 min. Futile cycling was increased in the presence of 0.05 or 1 mM-alpha-chlorohydrin but not to an extent sufficient to account for… (More)
