[3-3H]- and [U-14C]alanine were administered to starved rats by bolus injection and by continuous infusion. The specific activities of alanine, glucose, and lactate in blood were followed. The tracer kinetics of alanine depended on the site of tracer administration and sampling. Tracer was either administered into the aorta and blood sampled from the vena… CONTINUE READING
