Monosaccharide transport in the mammary gland of the intact lactating rat.


The Michaelis-Menten equation for the utilization of competing substrates was applied to the uptake of 2-deoxy[3H]glucose into the mammary gland of anaesthetized lactating rats. Intracellular water was calculated from total tissue water and sucrose space. Fed rats had a mean transport capacity of 2.2 mumol/min per g of tissue, giving an actual glucose… (More)
