Inhibition of glucose-6-phosphate phosphohydrolase by 3-mercaptopicolinate and two analogs is metabolically directive.


3-Mercaptopicolinae (3-MP) blocks gluconeogenesis from lactate, pyruvate, alanine, and other substrates through its inhibition of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase. Nevertheless, we observed increased glycogenesis, net glucose uptake, and glucose-6-P levels in livers perfused with glucose in the presence of 3-MP. In perfusions with 20 mM dihydroxyacetone… (More)
