The levels of glycogen and lactate in liver, intestine, yolk sac membrane and leg and breast muscle of domestic fowl from day 10 of "in ovo" development to day 5 after hatching compared with adults have been measured and compared with the circulating concentrations in blood of glucose and lactate. Glycogen stores in most tissues increased before hatching to attain a minimum around the eclosion and then increased to adult values in muscle and liver. Lactate maintained its plasma concentrations… CONTINUE READING
