La insulina promueve las vias de almacenamiento y sintesis en el higado que incluye glucogenesis y lipogenesis.
A high amount of amylolitic bacteria may increase the production of pronionic acid (NUSSIO et al., 2006) which, after being absorbed by the ruminal wall, goes to the liver and metabolized until it is transformed into glucose through glucogenesis (O'CALLAGHAN; BOLAND, 1999).
In the liver, several important pathways play a role in glucose homeostasis by maintaining a balance between glucose uptake and storage that is determined by glucogenesis and glycolysis, as well as glucose release that is regulated by glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis (Baquet et al., 1990).
The additional protein calories via glucogenesis may have provided additional substrate for glycogen resynthesis to occur, therefore aiding in an enhanced recovery.
La insulina es la principal hormona anabolica y su funcion consiste en promover la recaptura de glucosa por los tejidos muscular y adiposo, asi como suprimir las rutas metabolicas que promueven la produccion de glucosa por el higado (glucogenolisis y glucogenesis).
Los efectos principales de esta hormona son: el incremento de la acumulacion de proteinas (mayor retencion de nitrogeno, el cual es un factor indispensable en la sintesis de proteinas), la disminucion de la capa lipidica (la somatotrofina tiene varios efectos sobre las grasas), disminucion de la glucogenesis, un aumento en la glucolisis y por ultimo el aumento en la produccion de leche (3).
Epinephrine increases glucogenesis and glycogen breakdown in the liver, leading to hyperglycemia.
Agent Comment Metformin Increased insulin sensitivity, reduction of glucogenesis, inhibition of excessive glucose absorption, enhanced glycolysis by increasing gene expression that encodes for glucokinase and liver-specific pyruvate kinase.
