Publisher Summary This chapter describes the properties of sugar and amino acid fluxes and their regulation in the giant axon of Loligo forbesi. The giant axon has transport systems for sugars and amino acids and they reveal many features in common with the mammalian brain. Sugar transport in the squid giant axon is regulated in a manner that serves to maintain axoplasmic sugar levels. Compared to other tissues, D-glucose is metabolized slowly by the giant axon. As such, under conditions where… CONTINUE READING
