Turnover of hepatic phosphofructokinase in normal and diabetic rats. Role of insulin and peptide stabilizing factor.

Earlier work demonstrated that the activity of liver phosphofructokinase (PFK-L2) and immunoreactive PFK-L2 were decreased in diabetic rats and increased to normal or super-normal amounts following insulin treatment (Dunaway, G.A., and Weber, G., (1974) Arch.
