Stimulation of oxygen uptake by glucagon is oxygen dependent in perfused rat liver.

Abstract

Livers from well-fed female Sprague-Dawley rats (100-150 g) were perfused at flow rates of 4 or 8 ml.g liver-1.min-1 to deliver O2 to the organ at various rates. During perfusion at normal flow rates (4 ml.g-1.min-1), glucagon (10 nM) increased O2 uptake in perfused liver by approximately 40 mumol.g-1.h-1. In contrast, glucagon increased O2 uptake by nearly… (More)
