The constant content of glycogen indicated either that glycogen was not in great demand or that it was resynthesized from other constituents by glyconeogenesis.
These changes may be the result of reduced hepatic glucose production because we found that the pyruvate carboxylase (Pcx), the first of the key enzymes involved in glyconeogenesis, in [Lmna.
Administration of 20-OH-ecclysone and glibenclamide had beneficial effects on glucose concentration as well as sequential metabolic correlation between increased glycolysis and decreased glyconeogenesis, suggesting the possible biochemical mechanism through which glucose homeostasis is regulated.
O:N ratio variation can be related to glucose homeostasis, through the regulation of glyconeogenesis (Cuzon et al.
