Glucose release as a response to glucagon in rat hepatocyte culture: involvement of NO signaling.


Glucagon and alpha-adrenergic-induced glycogenolysis is realized via the agonist/adenylyl cyclase/cAMP/protein kinase signaling pathway or via the activation of phosphorylase kinase by the mobilized calcium that supports the inhibition of glycogen synthase, respectively. The role of nitric oxide (NO) in this process has not been extensively studied. The… (More)
