Flashcards in Gluconeogenesis Deck (11):
what are the 2 organs that perform gluconeogenesis?
kidney (prolonged fast)
glycerol is released from hydrolysis of TAGs and converted into what?
What is the cori cycle?
glucose to lactate through anaerobic glycolysis
to the liver
lactate converted back to glucose
released back to circulation
amino acids (specifically Alanine) for gluconeogenesis are derived from what source?
hydrolysis of muscle proteins
Acetyl CoA can be converted into pyruvate in humans. T or F?
what regulator found in both glycolysis and gluconeogenesis has opposite effects and keeps the pathways exclusive?
How does glucagon affect fructose 2,6-BP?
lowers fructose 2,6-BP
how does glucagon affect PEP?
inhibits pyruvate kinase
PEP is used for gluconeogenesis instead of glycolysis
how do glucagon and insulin affect PEPCK?
where does the energy for gluconeogenesis come from?
oxidation of fatty acids in the liver
