The mechanism of action of hepatic sympathetic nerves on ketone-body output from perfused rat liver. The effect of the interaction of noradrenaline with ATP on the release of beta-hydroxybutyrate.

Abstract

The regulatory mechanism of ketone-body output by the hepatic sympathetic nerves was studied in rat liver perfused in situ. Enrichment of the perfusion medium with 1 mM octanoate increased the basal ketone-body output from the liver up to 1.5 mumol.min-1.g liver-1. Under these conditions, electrical stimulation of the hepatic nerves (20 V, 20 Hz, 2 ms… (More)
