One of the major liver functions is the ability of hepatocytes to store glucose in the form of glycogen for various purposes. Beside glucose production and secretion, the synthesis of glucuronides and ascorbate has been reported to be dependent on the extent of the glycogen stores and on the rate of glycogenolysis in the liver. It is common that the final steps of these pathways are catalysed by intraluminially orientated enzymes of the endoplasmic reticulum, which are supported by transporters… Expand

Hyaluronic Acid: Its Function and Degradation in in vivo Systems
Hyaluronic acid (hyaluronan, HA) is a linear polysaccharide formed from disaccharide units containing N-acetyl-d-glucosamine and glucuronic acid. Its molecular mass can vary between 2 x 105 and 10 xExpand
Antioxidant Compounds from Vegetable Matrices: Biosynthesis, Occurrence, and Extraction Systems
TLDR
This work aimed to give a comprehensive overview on the occurrence of these antioxidants in plants, in particular in plant foods, on the mechanisms of biosynthesis, and on conventional and innovative extraction systems. Expand
Fermentation and germination improve nutritional value of cereals and legumes through activation of endogenous enzymes
TLDR
Traditional fermentation and germination processes are presented as a means to address myriad interactions through activation of endogenous enzymes such as α‐amylase, pullulanase, phytase, and other glucosidases to break down complex macronutrients to their simple and more digestible forms. Expand

Smooth endoplasmic reticulum in rat hepatocytes during glycogen deposition and depletion.
  • R. Cardell
  • Biology, Medicine
  • International review of cytology
  • 1977
TLDR
The role of smooth endoplasmic reticulum (SER) in hepatic glycogen metabolism is discussed and it is shown that an abundance of SER is present in hepatocytes throughout all stages of glycogen depletion until the cell is devoid of glycogens granules. Expand
Normal hepatic glucose production in the absence of GLUT2 reveals an alternative pathway for glucose release from hepatocytes.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that hepatic glucose release does not require the presence of GLUT2 nor of any plasma membrane glucose facilitative diffusion mechanism, which implies the existence of an as yet unsuspected pathway for glucose release that may be based on a membrane traffic mechanism. Expand
Ascorbic acid synthesis is stimulated by enhanced glycogenolysis in murine liver
Ascorbic acid synthesis was stimulated by glucagon, dibutyryl cyclic AMP, as well as phenylephrine, vasopressin or okadaic acid, in hepatocytes prepared from fed mice. However, no such effect wasExpand
Demonstration of a Metabolically Active Glucose-6-phosphate Pool in the Lumen of Liver Microsomal Vesicles*
TLDR
It is concluded that liver microsomes take up glucose- 6-phosphate, constituting a pool directly accessible to intraluminal glucose-6-ph phosphatase activity, confirming the existence of separate transport proteins. Expand
Ascorbate metabolism and its regulation in animals.
TLDR
The authors deal with the synthesis and the breakdown of ascorbate as a part of the antioxidant and carbohydrate metabolism, and a complex metabolic regulation is supposed. Expand
Glucose-6-phosphatase
Glucose-6-phosphatase (D-glucose-6-phosphate phosphohydrolase; EG 3.1.3.9) is unique among gluconeogenic enzymes in a variety of respects. Not only is the enzyme either a part of, or extremelyExpand
Regulation of glucuronidation by glutathione redox state through the alteration of UDP-glucose supply originating from glycogen metabolism.
TLDR
Results suggest that alteration of the GSH/GSSG ratio regulates glucuronidation by affecting enzymes of the glycogen metabolism via the modification of UDP-glucuronate supply. Expand
DIFFERENTIATION OF ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM IN HEPATOCYTES
TLDR
It is indicated that glucose-6-phosphatase develops simultaneously within all of the rough endoplasmic reticulum membranes of a given cell, although asynchronously in the hepatocyte population as a whole. Expand
Glycogenolysis--and not gluconeogenesis--is the source of UDP-glucuronic acid for glucuronidation.
TLDR
It is suggested that UDP-glucuronic acid for glucuronidation derives predominantly from glycogen, while the NADPH generation for mixed function oxidation is linked to glucose uptake and/or gluconeogenesis in the liver. Expand
Fine structure of hepatocytes from fasted and fed rats.
TLDR
It is concluded that SER is associated with glycogen particles in rat hepatocytes during both deposition and depletion of glycogen. Expand
