We recently provided evidence of the presence of glucokinase (GCK) in the chicken liver [Berradi, H., Taouis, M., Cassy, S., Rideau, N., 2005. Glucokinase in chicken (Gallus gallus). Partial cDNA cloning, immunodetection and activity determination. Comp. Biochem. Physiol. B Biochem. Mol. Biol. 141, 129-139]. In the present study we addressed the question of whether nutritional regulation of GCK occurs. Several nutritional conditions were compared in chickens (5 weeks old) previously trained to… CONTINUE READING
