The metabolic fate of the amido-N group of glutamine in the tissues of the gastrointestinal tract in 24 h-fasted sheep

The results show the importance of the GIT as a contributor to total glutamine plasma flux, but indicate a lesser reliance on glutamine metabolism by the digestive tract of the ruminant compared with observations from non-ruminants.

Fuel selection in intestinal cells

L’adaptation du metabolisme CnergCtique de l’intestin grsle au cours du developpement fait ainsi apparaitre des voies metaboliques transitoires telles que la voie de the gluconiogenkse et de the cktogenese.

Hepatic and portal-drained viscera balances of amino acids, insulin, glucagon and gastrin in the pig after ingestion of casein or rapeseed proteins.

The results showed that the nature as well as the level of dietary proteins have large effects on the sequence and volume of absorptive phenomena, the hepatic metabolism of nutrients, the production of gastrointestinal hormones and the non-hepatic tissue disposal of absorbed nutrients.

Glutamine Randomized Studies in Early Life: The Unsolved Riddle of Experimental and Clinical Studies

The methodological problems noted in the reviewed randomized experimental and clinical trials should be seriously considered in any future well-designed large blinded randomized controlled trial involving glutamine supplementation in critical illness.

Metabolic fate and function of dietary glutamate in the gut.

The physiologic significance of glutamate as an oxidative fuel and its potential role in gastric function during infancy are discussed and studies suggest that at high dietary intakes, free glutamate may be absorbed by the stomach as well as the small intestine, thus implicating the gastric mucosa in the metabolism of dietary glutamate.

Experimental streptozotocin-induced diabetes and intestinal glucose metabolism in the rat, in vivo and in vitro

Investigation in vivo and in vitro the effect of different arterial glucose concentrations on glucose utilization and lactate, alanine, and pyruvate production in normal and diabetic rats when the glucose is supplied to the intestine exclusively via the vascular route found that the lactate produced was significantly higher in diabetic than in normal rats.

In vitro study on the contribution of the rat intestine-pancreas to glucose homeostasis

The functional unit intestine-pancreas seems to play an important role in glucose homeostasis by elaborating the adequate mixture of glucose and lactate that must reach the liver under the various metabolic conditions.

Gastrointestinal protein and amino acid metabolism in growing animals 1

Intestinal protein and amino acid metabolism is primarily regulated by the modality (enteral versus parenteral) and quantity of nutrient intake, and to a lesser extent by the composition of nutrients.

Substrate oxidation by the portal drained viscera of fed piglets.

It is concluded that three-fourths of the energy needs of the PDV are satisfied by the oxidation of glucose, glutamate, and glutamine, and that dietary glutamate is the most important single contributor to mucosal oxidative energy generation.
