According to the hypothesis that most glucose absorption occurs passively across intestinal tight junctions (paracellular absorption), one would predict fairly similar rates of in vivo absorption of L-glucose, the stereoisomer of D-glucose that is absorbed only passively and is not catabolized, and of 3-O-methyl-D-glucose (3OMD-glucose), the D-glucose analogue that is actively and passively transported and not catabolized. In house sparrows Passer domesticus, we applied a pharmacokinetic method… CONTINUE READING
