Ontogeny of glutamine transport by rat liver plasma membrane vesicles.

Abstract

Glutamine metabolism in the liver is essential for gluconeogenesis and ureagenesis. During the suckling period there is high hepatic protein accretion and the portal vein glutamine concentration is twice that in the adult, whereas hepatic vein glutamine concentration is similar between adult and suckling rats. Therefore, we hypothesized that glutamine… (More)
