The flux of glucose carbon to total body fatty acids was measured in unanesthetized mice either after fasting or 50-80 min after they nibbled a small test meal containing 120 mg of glucose (fasted-refed). Flux was calculated from plasma [(14)C]glucose specific activity curves and from total body (14)C-labeled fatty acid 30 min after intravenous injection of… CONTINUE READING
