Hepatocyte nitric oxide biosynthesis inhibits glucose output and competes with urea synthesis for L-arginine.


Inflammatory stimulation of the liver is known to induce nitric oxide (NO) biosynthesis. NO can interfere with the activity of a number of enzymes important to cellular metabolism. This study was carried out to investigate the influence of NO on rat hepatocyte glucose output and urea production. Induction of NO synthesis by incubation with a combination of… (More)
