Metabolism of [14C]glucose in Haemobartonella-like infected erythrocytes in splenectomized calves.

Abstract

A quantitative relationship was established between glucose utilization by Embden-Meyerhof glycolytic pathway and hexose monophosphate shunt in erythrocytes from splenectomized calves infected with a Haemobartonella bovis-like organism. Parasitized erythrocytes metabolized glucose 3.69-fold above normal. Embden-Meyerhof glycolytic pathway accounted for 99.4% of glucose utilization, and the remainder, by hexose monophosphate shunt.
