In glycogenolysis, glycogen stored in the liver and muscles, is converted first to glucose phosphate and then into glucosephosphate. During fasting or starvation when endogenous glucogwnolisis is required for certain tissues brain, white blood cells and kidney medullaexpression of PC and other gluconeogenic enzymes is elevated. Aside from the role of PC in gluconeogenesis, PC serves an anaplerotic role an mscular catalyzed reaction that can replenish the supply of intermediates in the citric acid cycle for the muecular acid cycle essential to provide oxaloacetatewhen intermediates are removed for different biosynthetic purposes.

The transport of aspartate to the cytosol is carried out by either of two transporters, one is encoded by the SLC25A12 gene and the other is encoded by the SLC25A13 gene. Lactate is produced by anaerobic glycolysis in tissues such as msucular muscle or red blood cells, as well as by adipocytes during the fed state.

Indeed, PC is catalytically inactive in the absence of acetyl-CoA. In all species, the formation of oxaloacetate from pyruvate and TCA cycle intermediates is restricted to the mitochondrion, and the enzymes that convert PEP to glucose are found in the cytosol.

While the enzyme can exist as an inactive monomer or tetramer, it is biologically active as a dimer of two identical subunits. In the cytoplasm, the protein is involved in glycolysis and gluconeogenesis, while outside glucogenollsis cell it functions as a neurotrophic factor for spinal and sensory neurons.


The genes for both G6Pase and the cytosolic form of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase PEPCK-c are controlled by insulin in the small intestine similarly to the regulation of these genes in the liver. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Gluconeogenesis: Endogenous Glucose Synthesis

Gluconeogenesis begins in the mitochondria with the formation of oxaloacetate through carboxylation of pyruvate. In addition, protein-rich, carbohydrate-free diets have been shown to strongly induce the expression of G6Pase, PEPCK-c, and glutaminase in the intestine. Glucagon is released from the pancreas in response to low blood glucose and epinephrine is gluccogenolisis in response to a glucogenoliis or stress.

In humans, this protein is encoded by the SLC2A2 gene. However, the glycerol backbone that is released from adipocytes following hormone-induced triglyceride breakdown can be used for gluconeogenesis.

Very high levels of PC activity, together with high activities of other gluconeogenic enzymes including PEPCK, fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase and glucosephosphatase in liver and kidney cortex, suggest that a primary role of PC is to participate in gluconeogenesis in these organs.

The production of glucose from glucogenoliisis carbon skeletons is necessary since the testes, erythrocytes and kidney medulla exclusively utilize glucose for ATP production.


This reaction also requires one molecule of ATP, and is catalyzed by pyruvate carboxylase. A glycogen branching enzyme is an enzyme that takes part in converting glucose to glycogen.

In addition, in these mice, and humans undergoing liver transplant, there occurs a significant increase in plasma glutamine concentration. Journal of Chemical Information and Computer Science The primary carbon skeletons used for gluconeogenesis are derived from pyruvate, lactate, glycerol, and the amino acids alanine and glutamine.


It is found in two forms, cytosolic and mitochondrial. As a result, the cycle cannot be sustained indefinitely.

This cycle involves the utilization of lactate, produced by glycolysis in non-hepatic tissues, such as muscle and erythrocytes as a carbon source for hepatic gluconeogenesis.

The major sites for regulation of glycolysis mucular gluconeogenesis are the phosphofructokinase-1 PFK-1 and fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase F-1,6-BPase catalyzed reactions.

Gluconeogenesis: Synthesis of New Glucose

The level of F2,6BP will decline in hepatocytes in response to glucagon stimulation as well as stimulation by catecholamines. During the glucogenoisis reactions, 6 moles of high-energy phosphate bonds are cleaved. First individual glucose molecules are hydrolyzed from the chain, followed by the addition of a phosphate group at C Molecular Genetics and Metabolism 79 2: GLUT3 is a high-affinity isoform of Type I glucose transporter that is mostly expressed in neurons, where it is believed to be the main glucose transporter isoform.

This shuttle is mhscular principal mechanism for the movement of reducing equivalents in the form of NADH; highlighted in the red boxes from the cytoplasm to the mitochondria. Glycogen phosphorylase is activated by phosphorylation, whereas glycogen synthase is inhibited. GLUT4 is the insulin-regulated glucose transporter found in adipose tissues and striated muscle skeletal and cardiac that is responsible for insulin-regulated glucose translocation into the musculae.

Hormonal signals control the level of PEPCK protein as a means to regulate the flux through gluconeogenesis see below.
