Catecholamines induced an increase in the activity of rat adipose tissue and liver phosphopyruvate carboxylases that was maintained for 48h. The response of adipose tissue phosphopyruvate carboxylase was blocked by actinomycin D, corticosteroids and propranolol, whereas corticosteroids and propranolol did not affect the liver enzyme. Cortisol phosphate, like actinomycin D, interfered only with the initiation of the increase in enzyme activity caused by noradrenaline, but not with the process of…

Effects of cyclic adenosine monophosphate, dexamethasone and insulin on phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase synthesis in Reuber H-35 hepatoma cells.
It is suggested that hepatic phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase activity is regulated predominantly by the antagonistic interaction of cAMP (glucagon) and insulin on enzyme synthesis.
Hormonal regulation of hepatic P-enolpyruvate carboxykinase (GTP) during development.
These studies, together with work on the synthesis of P-enolpyruvate carboxykinase, indicate that the sharp drop in the concentration of insulin may relieve the normal inhibition of enzyme synthesis, which would allow the initial stimulation of enzymes synthesis by the glucagon-mediated rise in the concentrate of CAMP.
In vivo regulation of glycolytic and gluconeogenic enzyme gene expression in newborn rat liver.
Investigation of the effects of long-term physiological hyperglucagonemia and insulinopenia induced by suckling on expression of the two genes in the liver of normal newborn rats shows that transcription of the L-type pyruvate kinase gene is inhibited at birth and remains low during the whole suckling period, whereas transcription of this gene is maximal in the neonate, and then decreases despite very high levels of plasma glucagon during suckling.
Effect of prolactin and glucocorticoids on P-enolpyruvate carboxykinase activity in liver and mammary gland from diabetic and lactating rats
SummaryThe administration of 2 bromo-α-ergocryptine, to reduce serum prolactin decreased the activity of cytosolic P-enolpyruvatc carboxykinase (GTP) (EC4.1.1.32) about 50% in both liver and mammary
A mutation in the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ-binding site in the gene for the cytosolic form of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase reduces adipose tissue size and fat content in mice
The importance of the PPARE site for PEPCK-C gene expression in adipose tissue and the role of PEPCk-C in the regulation of glyceroneogenesis, a pathway critical for maintaining the deposition of triglyceride deposition, are established.
Regulation of Adipose Tissue Metabolism in Humans: Analysis of Responses to the Hyperinsulinemic-Euglycemic Clamp Experiment
A mechanistic, computational model of adipose tissue metabolism in vivo has been enhanced to simulate the physiological responses during hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamp experiment in humans and indicates that reduced redox and increased phosphorylation states provide a favorable milieu for glyceroneogenesis in response to insulin.
Glucagon and Gluconeogenesis
The most important function of gluconeogenesis is the maintenance of blood glucose levels during times when food intake is restricted and/or glycogen stores are depleted.
