Role of glutamine in human carbohydrate metabolism in kidney and other tissues. (1/1508)

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body and is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid. Until recently, the understanding of many aspects of glutamine metabolism was based on animal and in vitro data. However, recent studies using isotopic and balance techniques have greatly advanced the understanding of glutamine metabolism in humans and its role in glucose metabolism in the kidney and other tissues. There is now evidence that in postabsorptive humans, glutamine is an important glucose precursor and makes a significant contribution to the addition of new carbon to the glucose carbon pool. The importance of alanine for gluconeogenesis, viewed in terms of the addition of new carbons, is less than previously assumed. It appears that glutamine is predominantly a renal gluconeogenic substrate, whereas alanine gluconeogenesis is essentially confined to the liver. As shown recently, renal gluconeogenesis contributes 20 to 25% to whole-body glucose production. Moreover, glutamine has been shown not only to stimulate net muscle glycogen storage but also to stimulate gluconeogenesis in normal humans. Finally, in humans with type II diabetes, conversion of glutamine to glucose is increased (more so than that of alanine). The available evidence on the hormonal regulation of glutamine gluconeogenesis in kidney and liver and its alterations under pathological conditions are discussed.  (+info)

Inactivation of the winged helix transcription factor HNF3alpha affects glucose homeostasis and islet glucagon gene expression in vivo. (2/1508)

Mice homozygous for a null mutation in the winged helix transcription factor HNF3alpha showed severe postnatal growth retardation followed by death between P2 and P12. Homozygous mutant mice were hypoglycemic despite unchanged expression of HNF3 target genes involved in hepatic gluconeogenesis. Whereas insulin and corticosteroid levels were altered as expected, plasma glucagon was reduced markedly in the mutant animals despite the hypoglycemia that should be expected to increase glucagon levels. This correlated with a 70% reduction in pancreatic proglucagon gene expression. We also showed that HNF3alpha could bind to and transactivate the proglucagon gene promoter. These observations invoke a central role for HNF3alpha in the regulatory control of islet genes essential for glucose homeostasis in vivo.  (+info)

Contributions of net hepatic glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis to glucose production in cirrhosis. (3/1508)

Net hepatic glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis were examined in normal (n = 4) and cirrhotic (n = 8) subjects using two independent methods [13C nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) and a 2H2O method]. Rates of net hepatic glycogenolysis were calculated by the change in hepatic glycogen content before ( approximately 11:00 PM) and after ( approximately 7:00 AM) an overnight fast using 13C NMR and magnetic resonance imaging. Gluconeogenesis was calculated as the difference between the rates of glucose production determined with an infusion of [6,6-2H2]glucose and net hepatic glycogenolysis. In addition, the contribution of gluconeogenesis to glucose production was determined by the 2H enrichment in C-5/C-2 of blood glucose after intake of 2H2O (5 ml/kg body water). Plasma levels of total and free insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) and IGF-I binding proteins-1 and -3 were significantly decreased in the cirrhotic subjects (P < 0.01 vs. controls). Postprandial hepatic glycogen concentrations were 34% lower in the cirrhotic subjects (P = 0.007). Rates of glucose production were similar between the cirrhotic and healthy subjects [9.0 +/- 0.9 and 10.0 +/- 0.8 micromol. kg body wt-1. min-1, respectively]. Net hepatic glycogenolysis was 3.5-fold lower in the cirrhotic subjects (P = 0.01) and accounted for only 13 +/- 6% of glucose production compared with 40 +/- 10% (P = 0.03) in the control subjects. Gluconeogenesis was markedly increased in the cirrhotic subjects and accounted for 87 +/- 6% of glucose production vs. controls: 60 +/- 10% (P = 0.03). Gluconeogenesis in the cirrhotic subjects, as determined from the 2H enrichment in glucose C-5/C-2, was also increased and accounted for 68 +/- 3% of glucose production compared with 54 +/- 2% (P = 0.02) in the control subjects. In conclusion, cirrhotic subjects have increased rates of gluconeogenesis and decreased rates of net hepatic glycogenolysis compared with control subjects. These alterations are likely important contributing factors to their altered carbohydrate metabolism.  (+info)

Enhanced gluconeogenesis and hepatic insulin resistance in insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 transgenic mice. (4/1508)

Fasting hyperglycemia is observed in transgenic mice which overexpress insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1. In an attempt to understand the mechanisms underlying this observation we have examined glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis in isolated hepatocytes from wild-type and transgenic mice. Glucose production from pyruvate was significantly less responsive to inhibition by insulin in hepatocytes from transgenic mice compared to hepatocytes from wild-type mice. Serum from transgenic mice resulted in more glucose production by hepatocytes than serum from wild-type mice. Serum alanine was increased while serum lactate was significantly reduced in transgenic mice compared to wild-type mice. Serum free fatty acids and beta-hydroxybutyrate were similar in both groups of mice. These data suggest that fasting hyperglycemia is due to enhanced gluconeogenesis, hepatic insulin resistance and increased serum gluconeogenic substrate in transgenic mice.  (+info)

Resistance to insulin's acute direct hepatic effect in suppressing steady-state glucose production in individuals with type 2 diabetes. (5/1508)

We and others have shown that insulin acutely suppresses glucose production in fasting nondiabetic humans and dogs, by both a direct hepatic effect and an indirect (extrahepatic) effect, and in diabetic dogs by an indirect effect alone. In type 2 diabetes, there is resistance to insulin's ability to suppress hepatic glucose production, but it has not previously been determined whether the resistance is primarily at the level of the hepatocyte or the peripheral tissues. To determine whether the diabetic state reduces the direct effect of insulin in humans, we studied nine patients with untreated type 2 diabetes who underwent three studies each, 4-6 weeks apart. 1) Portal study (POR): intravenous tolbutamide was infused for 3 h with calculation of pancreatic insulin secretion from peripheral plasma C-peptide. 2) Peripheral study (PER): equidose insulin was infused by peripheral vein. 3) Half-dose peripheral insulin study (1/2 PER): matched peripheral insulin levels with study 1. In all studies, glucose was clamped at euglycemia, glucose turnover was measured with the constant specific activity method, and 3-[3H]glucose was purified by high-performance liquid chromatography. Peripheral insulin was lower in POR versus PER but slightly higher in POR versus 1/2 PER, although most of the difference could be accounted for by higher proinsulin levels in POR (stimulated by tolbutamide). Calculated portal insulin was approximately 1.3-fold higher in POR versus PER and approximately 2.2-fold higher in POR versus 1/2 PER. In the final 30 min of the clamp, glucose production reached a lower steady-state level in PER than in POR (4.0 +/- 0.4 vs. 5.3 +/- 0.5 pmol(-1) x kg(-1) x min(-1), P < 0.05), despite the higher hepatic insulin level in POR. In contrast with our studies in nondiabetic individuals, glucose production was not more suppressed at steady state in POR versus 1/2 PER (5.3 +/- 0.4 micromol x kg(-1) x min(-1)), despite much higher hepatic insulin levels in POR. In conclusion, this is the first study in patients with type 2 diabetes to characterize insulin resistance to the acute direct suppressive effect of insulin on hepatic glucose production.  (+info)

Gluconeogenesis in very low birth weight infants receiving total parenteral nutrition. (6/1508)

Very low birth weight (VLBW) infants are dependent on total parenteral nutrition (TPN) to prevent hypoglycemia and provide a sufficient energy intake. However, diminished tolerance for parenteral glucose delivered at high rates frequently provokes hyperglycemia. We hypothesized that when their glucose supply is reduced to prevent hyperglycemia, VLBW infants can maintain normoglycemia via gluconeogenesis from glycerol and amino acids. Twenty infants born at 27 +/- 0.2 (mean +/- SE) gestational weeks and having a birth weight of 996 +/- 28 g, received lipids (1.6 +/- 0.1 mg x kg(-1) x min(-1)), protein (2.2 +/- 0.1 mg x kg(-1) x min(-1)), and glucose (3.1 +/- 0.1 mg x kg(-1) x min(-1) [17.1 +/- 0.2 micromol x kg(-1) x min(-1)]) parenterally over a period of 8-12 h on day 5.0 +/- 0.2 of life. Gluconeogenesis was estimated using [U-13C]glucose (n = 8) or [2-(13)C] glycerol (n = 6) and mass isotopomer distribution analysis (MIDA), or 2H2O (n = 6) and the rate of deuterium incorporation in carbon 6 of glucose. Blood glucose averaged 3.0 +/- 0.1 mmol/l; plasma glucose appearance rate (glucose Ra), 28.8 +/- 1.1 micromol x kg(-1) x min(-1); and glucose production rate (GPR), 10.7 +/- 1.0 micromol x kg(-1) x min(-1). The [U-13C]glucose and [2-(13)C]glycerol tracers provided similar estimates of gluconeogenesis, averaging 28 +/- 2 and 26 +/- 2% of glucose Ra and 72 +/- 5 and 73 +/- 9% of GPR, respectively. Glycerol contributed 64 +/- 5% of total gluconeogenesis. Gluconeogenesis measured by 2H2O, which does not include the contribution from glycerol, was comparable to the nonglycerol fraction of gluconeogenesis derived by the [2-(13)C]glycerol MIDA. We conclude that in VLBW infants receiving TPN, normoglycemia was maintained during reduced glucose infusion by glucose production primarily derived from gluconeogenesis, and that glycerol was the principal gluconeogenic substrate.  (+info)

Acn9 is a novel protein of gluconeogenesis that is located in the mitochondrial intermembrane space. (7/1508)

Previous studies have indicated that the Acn9 protein is involved in gluconeogenesis. Yeast mutants defective in the ACN9 gene display phenotypes identical with mutants defective in metabolic enzymes required for carbon assimilation. These phenotypes include the inability to utilize acetate as a carbon and energy source, elevated levels of enzymes of the glyoxylate cycle, gluconeogenesis and acetyl-CoA mobilization, and a deficiency in de novo synthesis of glucose from ethanol. The ACN9 gene was isolated by functional complementation of the acetate growth defect of an acn9 mutant. The open reading frame corresponds to YDR511w, and encodes a protein of unknown function. Homologs have been identified in human, mouse, and nematode databases. Two mutant alleles were sequenced. The mutations altered amino acid residues that are conserved among members of the new gene family. ACN9 gene expression was slightly repressed by glucose, and the level of the transcript was approximately 100-fold lower than that of glyoxylate or tricarboxylic acid cycle enzymes. A functional epitope-tagged form of Acn9 was expressed to study expression and the subcellular localization of the protein. The tagged protein was localized to the mitochondrial intermembrane space.  (+info)

Effects of a high-fat diet and voluntary wheel running on gluconeogenesis and lipolysis in rats. (8/1508)

The purpose of the present study was to determine the effects of diet composition and exercise on glycerol and glucose appearance rate (Ra) and on nonglycerol gluconeogenesis (Gneo) in vivo. Male Wistar rats were fed a high-starch diet (St, 68% of energy as cornstarch, 12% corn oil) for a 2-wk baseline period and then were randomly assigned to one of four experimental groups: St (n = 7), high-fat (HF; 35% cornstarch, 45% corn oil; n = 8), St with free access to exercise wheels (StEx; n = 7), and HF with free access to exercise wheels (HFEx; n = 7). After 8 wk, glucose Ra when using [3-3H]glucose, glycerol Ra when using [2H5]glycerol (estimate of whole body lipolysis), and [3-13C]alanine incorporation into glucose (estimate of alanine Gneo) were determined. Body weight and fat pad mass were significantly (P < 0.05) decreased in exercise vs. sedentary animals only. The average amount of exercise was not significantly different between StEx (3,212 +/- 659 m/day) and HFEx (3,581 +/- 765 m/day). The ratio of glucose to alanine enrichment and absolute glycerol Ra (micromol/min) were higher (P < 0.05) in HF and HFEx compared with St and StEx rats. In separate experiments, the ratio of 3H in C-2 to C-6 of glucose from 3H2O (estimate of Gneo from pyruvate) was also higher (P < 0.05) in HF (n = 5) and HFEx (n = 5), compared with St (n = 5) and StEx (n = 5) rats. Voluntary wheel running did not significantly increase estimated alanine or pyruvate Gneo or absolute glycerol Ra. Voluntary wheel running increased (P < 0.05) glycerol Ra when normalized to fat pad mass. These data suggest that a high-fat diet can increase in vivo Gneo from precursors that pass through pyruvate. They also suggest that changes in the absolute rate of glycerol Ra may contribute to the high-fat diet-induced increase in Gneo.  (+info)

To evaluate glucose kinetics in children with falciparum malaria, basal glucose production and gluconeogenesis and an estimate of the flux of the gluconeogenic precursors were measured in Kenyan children with uncomplicated falciparum malaria before (n = 11) and during infusion of alanine (1.5 mg/kg.min; n = 6). Glucose production was measured by [6,6-2H2]glucose, gluconeogenesis by mass isotopomer distribution analysis of glucose labeled by [2-13C]glycerol. Basal plasma glucose concentration ranged from 2.1-5.5 mmol/L, and basal glucose production ranged from 3.3-7.3 mg/kg.min. Glucose production was largely derived from gluconeogenesis (73 +/- 4%; range, 52-93%). During alanine infusion, plasma glucose increased by 0.4 mmol/L (P = 0.03), glucose production increased by 0.8 mg/kg.min (P = 0.02), and gluconeogenesis increased by 0.8 mg/kg.min (P = 0.04). We conclude that glucose production in children with uncomplicated falciparum malaria is largely dependent on gluconeogenesis. However, gluconeogenesis
It has been suggested that Sorghum, a rich source of phytochemicals, has a hypoglycemic effect, but the mechanism is unknown. We investigated the effects of oral administration of sorghum extract (SE) on hepatic gluconeogenesis and the glucose uptake of muscle in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats for six weeks. Male Wistar rats were divided in five groups (n=5 per group): normal control (NC), rats with STZ-induced diabetic mellitus (DM), diabetic rats administrated 0.4 g/kg body weight of SE (DM-SE 0.4) and 0.6 g/kg body weight of SE (DM-SE 0.6), and diabetic rats administrated 0.7 mg/kg body weight of glibenclamide (DM-G).

Regulation of hepatic gluconeogenesis by hormones insulin and glucagon is central to glucose homeostasis. Recent work has proposed that amongst the salt inducible kinase isoforms (SIK1, 2 and 3), members of the AMPK-related kinase family, the SIK2 isoform may play a role as signalling mediator in the control of insulin- and glucagon-regulated hepatic gluconeogenesis. However, the mechanisms of the hormonal-regulation of SIK2 in liver remain controversial, with much of the data based on the studies in non-hepatic tissues/cells. Therefore, the exact molecular regulation of SIK2 by these hormones in the liver required robust and intensive molecular/biochemical research coupled to physiological readout (e.g. gluconeogenesis). My studies with phosphopeptide mapping by mass spectrometry followed by verification with well-characterised phospho-specific antibodies revealed that SIK2 was phosphorylated on Ser343, Ser358, Thr484 and Ser587 in response to glucagon and fasting but not following insulin ...
The last lesson covered how insulin, glucagon, and allosteric regulators from within the liver ensure that the liver only engages in gluconeogenesis when it can and when it needs to. This lesson focuses on an additional layer of regulation: cortisol. Cortisol is the principal glucocorticoid in humans. Glucocorticoids are steroid hormones produced by the adrenal cortex that increase blood glucose. Cortisol has multiple actions on the liver, muscle, adipose, and pancreas that all converge on making glucose more available to the brain. Among them, it increases movement of fatty acids from adipose to the liver, which provide the energy for gluconeogenesis, and the movement of amino acids from skeletal muscle to the liver, which provide the building blocks for gluconeogenesis. Cortisol serves both to antagonize insulin, thereby acutely increasing gluconeogenesis, and to increase the synthesis of gluconeogenic enzymes, which amplifies all other pro-gluconeogenic signaling and increases the total capacity for
Under fasting conditions, increases in circulating concentrations of glucagon maintain glucose homeostasis via the induction of hepatic gluconeogenesis. Triggering of the cAMP pathway in hepatocytes stimulates the gluconeogenic program via the PKA-mediated phosphorylation of CREB and dephosphorylation of the cAMP regulated CREB coactivators CRTC2 and CRTC3. In parallel, decreases in circulating insulin also increase gluconeogenic gene expression via the de-phosphorylation and activation of the forkhead transcription factor FOXO1. Hepatic gluconeogenesis is increased in insulin resistance where it contributes to the attendant hyperglycemia. Whether selective activation of the hepatic CREB/CRTC pathway is sufficient to trigger metabolic changes in other tissues is unclear, however. Modest hepatic expression of a phosphorylation-defective and therefore constitutively active CRTC2S171,275A protein increased gluconeogenic gene expression under fasting as well as feeding conditions. Circulating ...
I am using the term gluconeogenesis in this lecture to denote any new formation of carbohydrate from non-carbohydrates. These non-carbohydrates include amino acids, as well as the lactate continuously produced in the body, e.g. in blood cells and in the exercised muscles. When lactate is the precursor of carbohydrate the formation of glucose from it constitutes a re-formation rather than a new formation as the lactate has been derived from glucose. But as the enzymic mechanisms of glucose formation from lactate and from amino acids are essentially the same, it is reasonable to treat them jointly. Gluconeogenesis is a biosynthetic process of major importance. I intend to review first some aspects of the physiological role of gluconeogenesis. This will lead to the fact that the amounts of carbohydrate which are synthesized vary within very wide limits-between almost nil and perhaps 200 g per day in the case of the human adult-and this will bring me to the main subject: the question of how the rate ...
Beneficial effects of dietary fiber on glucose and energy homeostasis have long been described, focusing mostly on the production of short-chain fatty acids by the gut commensal bacteria. However, bacterial fermentation of dietary fiber also produces large amounts of succinate and, to date, no study …
In the context of the obesity epidemic, dietary fibers that are found essentially in fruit and vegetables attract more and more attention, since they exert numerous metabolic benefits resulting in the moderation of body weight. Short-chain fatty acids, such as propionate and butyrate, produced through their fermentation by the intestinal microbiota, have long been thought to be the mediators of these benefits. In fact, propionate and butyrate were recently shown to activate intestinal gluconeogenesis, a function exerting metabolic benefits via its capacity of signaling to the brain by gastrointestinal nerves. Recently, succinate, the precursor of propionate in the bacterial metabolism, has also been shown to exert signaling properties, including the activation of intestinal gluconeogenesis.

Insulin resistance results in dysregulated hepatic gluconeogenesis that contributes to obesity-related hyperglycemia and progression of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Recent studies show that MAPK phosphatase-3 (MKP-3) promotes gluconeogenic gene transcription in hepatoma cells, but little is known about the physiological role of MKP-3 in vivo. Here, we have shown that expression of MKP-3 is markedly increased in the liver of diet-induced obese mice. Consistent with this, adenovirus-mediated MKP-3 overexpression in lean mice promoted gluconeogenesis and increased fasting blood glucose levels. Conversely, shRNA knockdown of MKP-3 in both lean and obese mice resulted in decreased fasting blood glucose levels. In vitro experiments identified forkhead box O1 (FOXO1) as a substrate for MKP-3. MKP-3-mediated dephosphorylation of FOXO1 at Ser256 promoted its nuclear translocation and subsequent recruitment to the promoters of key gluconeogenic genes. In addition, we showed that PPARγ coactivator-1α ...
the measurement of the gluconeogenetic component of glucose production has been the goal of much developmental effort. Briefly, gluconeogenesis is the conversion of nonglucose substrate to glucose. A maximal rate of net gluconeogenesis can therefore be estimated from the uptake of all possible substrates by the liver (let us consider only this organ for the sake of simplicity) (1, 20, 28). An alternative, direct measurement is the simultaneous determination of glycogenolysis [by biopsy or NMR measurements (19, 25)] and the rate of total glucose production, gluconeogenesis being the difference. Clearly, these more direct methods cannot be frequently implemented in humans because of the degree of invasiveness or expense involved. Indirect measures of gluconeogenesis have therefore been sought. These have almost always involved the use of tracers, or isotopically labeled substrate and glucose. The basis of those estimates is the dilution principle in the measurement of total hepatic glucose ...

Author Summary That sugar can be converted into fatty acids in humans is a well-known fact. The question whether the reverse direction, i.e., gluconeogenesis from fatty acids, is also feasible has been a topic of intense debate since the end of the 19th century. With the discovery of the glyoxylate shunt that allows this conversion in some bacteria, plants, fungi and nematodes it has been considered infeasible in humans since the corresponding enzymes could not be detected. However, by this finding only a single route for gluconeogenesis from fatty acids has been ruled out. To address the question whether there might exist alternative routes in humans we searched for gluconeogenic routes from fatty acids in a metabolic network comprising all reactions known to take place in humans. Thus, we were able to identify several pathways showing that this conversion is indeed feasible. Analyzing evidence concerning the detected pathways lends support to their importance during times of starvation, fasting,
Hormonal regulation of hepatic gluconeogenic pathway flux is brought about by phosphorylation/dephosphorylation and control of gene expression of several key regulatory enzymes. Regulation by cAMP dependent phosphorylation occurs at the level of pyruvate kinase and 6-phosphofructo-2-kinase (6PF-1-K)/fructose-2,6-bisphosphatase (Fru-2,6-P2ase). The latter is a unique bifunctional enzyme that catalyzes both the synthesis and degradation of fructose-2,6-bisphosphate (Fru-2,6-P2), which is an activator of 6PF-1-K and an inhibitor of Fru-1,6-P2ase. The bifunctional enzyme is a homodimer whose activities are regulated by cAMP dependent protein kinase-catalyzed phosphorylation at a single NH2-terminal seryl residue/subunit, which results in activation of the Fru-2,6-P2ase and inhibition of the PF-1-K reactions. Hormone-mediated changes in the phosphorylation state of the bifunctional enzyme are responsible for acute regulation of Fru-2,6-P2 levels. 6PF-2-K/Fru-2,6-P2ase thus provides a switching ...
These data demonstrate that chronic hyperglucagonemia, when accompanied by increases in gluconeogenic precursor availability and adequate circulating concentrations of NEFA, can contribute to the infection-induced increase in glucose production and gluconeogenesis. These data confirm that even in an animal reliant predominantly on gluconeogenesis, combined increases in lactate and alanine uptake by the liver are unable to increase hepatic glucose output. If the substrate-induced suppression of NEFAs is prevented and/or NEFAs are increased, increases in gluconeogenic precursor supply can support an increase in hepatic glucose production.. Chronic hyperglucagonemia markedly enhanced the importance of the liver in disposal of the exogenous alanine. As expected, the uptake of alanine by the liver increased in parallel with the rise in alanine levels. This is reflected in the constancy of net fractional hepatic alanine extraction in the face of increases in blood alanine concentration (6). ...

Although the stimulatory effect of glucagon on gluconeogenesis has been well demonstrated in certain systems in vitro, this effect has never been established in man. The present study was undertaken, therefore, to determine whether glucagon could stimulate gluconeogenesis from alanine in normal fasting man. Glucagon might stimulate this process by increasing the hepatic alanine uptake and/or by shunting the extracted alanine within the liver into the gluconeogenic pathway. In order to be able to examine these two aspects of gluconeogenesis, we combined the hepatic veinbrachial artery catheterization technic with an isotopic infusion of alanine-14C. Alanine-14C specific activity was measured in whole blood and plasma by use of a rapid chromatographic technic. Since plasma contributed 93 per cent of the alanine extracted by the splanchnic bed with a specific activity three times that of the red blood cells, plasma alanine specific activity was used to study the conversion of alanine to glucose. A ...
Aldolase B is primary found in the liver, but can also be found in the small intestines and kidneys. B1. Interconversions of Cori Cycle If the Cori Cycle occurred and then remained in a single cell, no useful metabolic work would be complete. The reason for this is that if the Interconversions of the Cori Cycle were to take a place within a single cell it would constitute a futile cycle with glucose being consumed and resynthesized at the expense of the ATP and GTP hydrolysis. (Campbell & Farrell, 2008) If this were to happen the cycle would essentially be running in opposite directions, having no affect and wasting energy. Having both the glycolysis portion and the gluconeogenesis portion going at the same time, will result in glucose being converted in to pyruvate by glycolysis and then converted back to glucose by gluconeogenesis, all this will cause a use of ATP, not making. The cycle needs to take place in order to produce ATP, an energy source for the body especially during muscle ...
In Vivo Hyperpolarized Carbon-13 Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy Reveals Increased Pyruvate Carboxylase Flux in an Insulin-Resistant Mouse Model Philip Lee,1,2 Waifook Leong,1,3 Trish Tan,1,3 Miangkee Lim,1 Weiping Han,1,3,4 and George K. Radda1 The pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes is characterized by impaired insulin action andincreased hepatic glucose production (HGP). Despite the importance of hepatic metabolicaberrations in diabetes development, there is currently no molecular probe that allows mea-surement of hepatic gluconeogenic pathways in vivo and in a noninvasive manner. In thisstudy, we used hyperpolarized carbon 13 (13C)-labeled pyruvate magnetic resonance spec-troscopy (MRS) to determine changes in hepatic gluconeogenesis in a high-fat diet (HFD)-induced mouse model of type 2 diabetes. Compared with mice on chow diet, HFD-fed micedisplayed higher levels of oxaloacetate, aspartate, and malate, along with increased 13C labelexchange rates between hyperpolarized [1-13C]pyruvate and its ...
Full Text - Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) is a chronic metabolic disease characterized by glucose metabolic disorders, and gluconeogenesis inhibiting is a promisingly therapeutic strategy for T2DM. Glucocorticoid receptor (GR) is tightly implicated in the regulation of gluconeogenesis, although the underlying mechanism remains obscure. Here, we discovered that small molecule, 5-chloro-N-[4-chloro-3-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]thiophene-2-sulfonamide (FX5) as a new non-steroidal GR antagonist efficiently ameliorated glucose homeostasis in db/db and HFD/STZ-induced T2DM mice. The mechanism underlying the suppression of FX5 against gluconeogenesis was highly investigated. FX5 suppressed gluconeogenetic genes G6Pase and PEPCK in mouse primary hepatocytes and liver tissues of T2DM mice. Results of mammalian one-hybrid and transactivation as well as nuclear translocation assays totally evaluated the antagonistic features of FX5 against GR. Moreover, siRNA and overexpression related assays verified
In order to examine the role of fructose 2,6-bisphosphate (Fru-2,6-P2) in non-esterified-fatty-acid-stimulated gluconeogenesis, Fru-2,6-P2 levels were measured in cultured rat hepatocytes under conditions mimicking the fasted state. After addition of either 1.5 mM-palmitate or 10 nM-glucagon, [U-14C]lactate incorporation into glucose increased 2-fold, but only glucagon suppressed Fru-2,6-P2. Prevention of palmitate oxidation with a carnitine palmitoyltransferase-I inhibitor (2-bromopalmitate) diminished glucose production and Fru-2,6-P2 levels. Addition of exogenous glucose to the media increased Fru-2,6-P2 in a dose-related manner, which was further augmented by addition of palmitate. When Fru-2,6-P2 levels were examined in cells cultured under conditions mimicking the fed state (significantly higher basal Fru-2,6-P2 levels and lower glucose production), palmitate oxidation was associated with a significant fall in Fru-2,6-P2. In conclusion, the present studies have demonstrated a dissociation ...
Hepatocytes obtained from starved rats were incubated in oxygenated Krebs bicarbonate buffer containing 2% defatted bovine serum albumin. DL-alpha-Lipoic (dithio-octanoic) acid (1.0 mM) caused striking reductions in hepatic glucose output in the presence of each of the following substrates: pyruvate, lactate, alanine, dihydroxyacetone, glycerol, and fructose. With lactate as substrate, 0.1-1.0 mM-lipoate caused a concentration-dependent inhibition of gluconeogenesis. With the same substrate, e.g. lactate, 0.25-2.0 mM-octanoate abolished the effect of lipoate in a dose-dependent manner. Additional experimental data are presented which support the concept that the antigluconeogenic effects of lipoic acid in liver can be attributed largely, if not entirely, to sequestration of intramitochondrial coenzyme. A, presumably as lipoyl-CoA, bisnorlipoyl-CoA, or tetranorlipoyl-CoA. ...
Dietary protein-derived amino acids have a purpose, and that purpose is not carbs.. At a reasonable level of dietary intake, protein is used for the maintenance of organs & tissues. Lean body mass. Its functional. Protein isnt stored in any appreciable capacity, and most excess is either oxidized or stored as glycogen. Theoretically, about 50-60% of protein-derived amino acids can be converted into glucose, mathematically, but its not what you think…. At a reasonable level of dietary intake. A recent publication took a look at this (Fromentin et al., 2013). They set out to determine how much protein is converted to glucose under optimal gluconeogenic conditions. That is, the subjects were 12 hours fasted, which is a physiologically relevant, optimal gluconeogenic ...
We have shown that depletion of KLF15 by RNAi resulted in downregulation of the expression of genes for gluconeogenic enzymes such as PEPCK and G6Pase in cultured hepatocytes. Our results suggest that KLF15 binds directly to the promoter region of the PEPCK gene and regulates the expression of this gene in coordination with the transcriptional coactivator PGC1α. Moreover, the acute ablation of KLF15 specifically in the liver resulted in suppression of gluconeogenic gene expression in mice. These results thus indicate that KLF15 contributes to the regulation of genes for gluconeogenic enzymes. Mice with genetic KLF15 deficiency, however, were previously found to exhibit reduced hepatic expression of genes for amino acid catabolic enzymes but not of those for PEPCK and G6Pase (10). This apparent discrepancy with our present results might be attributable to a secondary effect of inborn deficiency of KLF15 in the entire body that leads to compensation for the lack of the transcription factor. In ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Dietary marine fish oils and insulin action in type 2 diabetes. AU - Karakas, Siddika E. PY - 1993. Y1 - 1993. N2 - Supplementation of omega-3 fish oils (n-3 FO) usually worsens the glycemic control in type 2 diabetic subjects. This may be a dose-related phenomenon and is reversed after discontinuation of the n-3 FO supplementation. An increase in the daily caloric intake, due to the fat content of n-3 FO supplements, and a consequent weight gain may contribute to the increase in hyperglycemia. Mechanisms of the increase in hyperglycemia include: (1) n-3 FO may interfere with insulin secretion from the pancreas, and this in turn can cause an increase in the hepatic glucose output and/or a decrease in the glucose uptake by the peripheral tissues; (2) n-3 FO may primarily decrease the sensitivity of liver to insulin action and consequently increase gluconeogenesis and/or glycogenolysis and/or decrease the glycogenesis; (3) n-3 FO may primarily affect the sensitivity of peripheral ...
The p53 tumor suppressor protein is a transcription factor that initiates transcriptional programs aimed at inhibiting carcinogenesis. p53 represses metabolic pathways that support tumor development (such as glycolysis and the pentose phosphate pathway (PPP)) and enhances metabolic pathways that are considered counter-tumorigenic such as fatty acid oxidation. In an attempt to comprehensively define metabolic pathways regulated by p53, we performed two consecutive high-throughput analyses in human liver-derived cells with varying p53 statuses. A gene expression microarray screen followed by constraint-based modeling (CBM) predicting metabolic changes imposed by the transcriptomic changes suggested a role for p53 in enhancing gluconeogenesis (de novo synthesis of glucose). Examining glucogenic gene expression revealed a p53-dependent induction of genes involved in both gluconeogenesis (G6PC, PCK2) and in supplying glucogenic precursors (glycerol kinase (GK), aquaporin 3 (AQP3), aquaporin 9 (AQP9) and

They provided the following example as to how such might occur - [o]ne source of protein loss is hepatic gluconeogenesis, whereby amino acids are used to produce glucose. This is inhibited by insulin, as is the breakdown of muscle proteins to release amino acids, and therefore occurs mainly during periods of fasting. However, inhibition of gluconeogenesis and protein catabolism is impaired when insulin release is abnormal, insulin resistance occurs, or when circulating levels of free fatty acids in the blood are high. These are interdependent conditions that are associated with overweight and obesity, and are especially pronounced in type 2 diabetes. It might be predicted that the result of higher rates of hepatic gluconeogenesis will be an increased requirement for protein in the diet. Unless either more high-P, low-C+F items are included in the diet (i.e. scenario 2), or rates of removing excess co-ingested C + F are increased, weight gain will occur. And the system becomes unstable - further ...

Our last post described the evidence that the rate of gluconeogenesis (GNG) is stable under a variety of metabolic conditions. We also described several experiments in which large amounts of protein were ingested or infused and did not increase the rate. We concluded that eating more protein than your body needs probably doesnt increase GNG.. Many of our readers expressed confusion about the implications of this finding, and our purpose in posting it.. The reason we investigated this was to address the following concern. One of the reasons keto dieters want to minimize the amount of carbohydrate they eat is so that their bodies dont have to deal with excess glucose in the blood. Whenever we ingest carbohydrate, it becomes sugar in the blood 1. Since blood sugar must be kept within a narrow range for safety 2, eating carbs then causes the body to release insulin in order to draw sugar quickly and safely out of the blood and into storage (as fat tissue) 3.. In our opinion, the ideal situation is ...

Many patients with type 2 diabetes go on to require insulin therapy to achieve adequate control. A need remains to develop new classes of oral hypoglycemic agents to complement those already in use. A useful target is the inappropriately elevated endogenous glucose production present in patients with type 2 diabetes. This review discusses mechanisms of increased glucose production and possible strategies and targets for its suppression. Several approaches are being investigated, including inhibitors of glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis, inhibitors of stimulatory hormones or their receptors, metabolic modulators, and agents that alter gene expression. There is a high probability that one of these approaches will soon result in a safe and effective inhibitor of glucose production. ...

X. campestris pv. campestris propagates and spreads in the apoplast of the host plant after infection (14, 29). Thus, the ability to acquire nutrients from the apoplast is critically important for it to cause disease. However, the nutritional requirements of X. campestris pv. campestris during infection and the molecular mechanism by which it acquires nutrients from the apoplast are still unclear. The observation that disruption of the gluconeogenic pathway resulted in significant reductions both in multiplication in planta and virulence of X. campestris pv. campestris suggested that the apoplast is lacking hexose but rich in gluconeogenic substrates (C2 or C3 compounds or the intermediates of the TCA cycle), and the gluconeogenic pathway is the only route to utilize these carbon sources to maintain the carbon and energy supplies for normal growth of X. campestris pv. campestris during infection. Furthermore, disruption of the glyoxylate cycle (mutation in aceA or mls) of X. campestris pv. ...
Abstract: Phase alterations in the intensity of gluconeogenesis were observed in 92 rats subjected to hypokinesia within 1-30 days. At early periods of fixation of the animals gluconeogenesis was increased in all the tissues studied; the activation was especially distinct within the first 7 days of the experiment. Intensity of gluconeogenesis was similar to control values within 15 days of hypokinesia and a slight activation was detected within 30 days. Content of glucose was maximal in liver tissue within 3 days but the glycogen level was distinctly decreased in all the periods of experiments except of the 7th day. The pattern of gluconeogenesis in liver tissue as well as content of carbohydrates should be taken into consideration in the course of prophylaxis and treatment of the unfavourable after-effects of hypokinesia ...

The enhancement of renal gluconeogenesis with glut-amine, glutamate, α-ketoglutarate and oxaloacetate, but not with fructose or glycerol as substrates, led to the tentative conclusions that in acidosis there is acceleration of one of the steps in the gluconeogenesis pathway distal to oxaloacetate. The results presented here represent an attempt to define that step.. AB - GOODMAN et al.1 have shown that there is enhanced renal gluconeogenesis in the rat with chronic metabolic acidosis.

Gluconeogenesis overview: Gluconeogenesis is the process by which glucose is synthesized from noncarbohydrate precursors. The major noncarbohydrate precursors are pyruvate, lactate, glycerol , and glucogenic amono acids. Some body tisssues, such as brain, renal medulla, erythrocytes, lens and cornea of eye, exercising muscle, and testes, require a continuous supply of glucose as a metabolic fuel. Hepatic glycogen can meet these .... Read More » ...

Insulin resistance is the cornerstone for the development of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). Free fatty acids (FFAs) cause insulin resistance in muscle and liver and increase hepatic gluconeogenesis and lipoprotein production and perhaps decrease hepatic clearance of insulin. It is suggested that the depressing effect of insulin on circulating FFA concentration is dependent on the fraction derived from visceral adipocytes, which have a low responsiveness to the antilipolytic effect of insulin. Elevated secretion of cortisol and/or testosterone induces insulin resistance in muscle. This also seems to be the case for low testosterone concentrations in men. In addition, cortisol increases hepatic gluconeogenesis. Cortisol and testosterone have permissive effect on adipose lipolysis and therefore amplify lipolytic stimulation; FFA, cortisol, and testosterone thus have powerful combined effects, resulting in insulin resistance and increased hepatic gluconeogenesis. All these ...

Glycolysis is the process of converting glucose into pyruvate and generating small amounts of ATP (energy) and NADH (reducing power). It is a central pathway that produces important precursor metabolites: six-carbon compounds of glucose-6P and fructose-6P and three-carbon compounds of glycerone-P, glyceraldehyde-3P, glycerate-3P, phosphoenolpyruvate, and pyruvate [MD:M00001]. Acetyl-CoA, another important precursor metabolite, is produced by oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate [MD:M00307]. When the enzyme genes of this pathway are examined in completely sequenced genomes, the reaction steps of three-carbon compounds from glycerone-P to pyruvate form a conserved core module [MD:M00002], which is found in almost all organisms and which sometimes contains operon structures in bacterial genomes. Gluconeogenesis is a synthesis pathway of glucose from noncarbohydrate precursors. It is essentially a reversal of glycolysis with minor variations of alternative paths [MD:M00003 ...

Our last post described the evidence that the rate of gluconeogenesis (GNG) is stable under a variety of metabolic conditions. We also described several experiments in which large amounts of protein were ingested or infused and did not increase the rate. We concluded that eating more protein than your body needs probably doesnt increase GNG. Many of our readers expressed confusion about the implications of this finding, and our purpose in posting it. The reason we investigated this was to address the following concern. One of the reasons keto dieters want to minimize the amount of carbohydrate they eat is so that their bodies dont have to deal with excess glucose in the blood. Whenever we ingest carbohydrate, it becomes sugar in the blood ¹. Since blood sugar must be kept within a narrow range for safety ², eating carbs then causes the body to release insulin in order to draw sugar quickly and safely out of the blood and into storage (as fat tissue) ³. In our opinion, the ideal situation is ...
Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder characterized by chronic hyperglycemia and disturbed metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins that occurs due damaged insulin secretion or disorder in insulin signal pathways. Liver has the essential role in maintenance adequate glucose concentration in blood. Glucose metabolism in liver is regulated by hormones which effect enzyme activity or enzyme synthesis. Depending on the metabolic needs, glycolysis and gluconeogenesis are exchanged. Regulating the essential enzymes of these processes is important to maintain glucose concentration within reference range. In diabetes mellitus, gluconeogenesis and glycogenolysis in liver cells are increased. On the other hand, activity of glycolytic and glycogenesis enzymes is decreased. The aim of this study was to examine the rate of glycolysis in tumor HepG2 cells in hyperglycemic conditions. HepG2 cells were treated with four different glucose concentrations (5 mM, 20 mM, 30 mM and 50 mM) and such treated ...
Different conditions are catabolic of prolonged fasting after 12-16 hours, in which the reserves of hepatic glycogen are exhausted: the process of gluconeogenesis becomes dominant, for which the glucose must be derived from the conversion of other molecules that are not glucidiche, which, as mentioned, are lactate, glycerol and amino acids arising from breakdown of skeletal muscle (muscle catabolism). It is at this stage that the slow acting counter-regulators such as GH and cortisol intervene. cortisol stimulates hepatic gluconeogenesis as well as lipolysis, resulting in increased levels of free fatty acids and glycerol, and also causes muscle catabolism GH has similar effects on lipolysis and gluconeogenesis, while simultaneously suppresses peripheral glucose utilisation.. Now that we have a general picture of the physiology, it seems clear that practicing aerobic activity, fasting is an extremely effective method for losing fat mass; however, is missing an essential element!. The physiology ...
Author Summary Previous genome-wide association studies revealed that TCF7L2 is a strong candidate for a type 2 diabetes gene. However, the direct involvement of TCF7L2 on hepatic glucose metabolism has been elusive to date. Here we show that TCF7L2 is critical in mediating transcriptional control of hepatic glucose production. We found that hepatic expression of nuclear isoforms of TCF7L2 was reduced in mouse models of insulin resistance. Acute depletion of TCF7L2 in the liver promoted glucose intolerance and up-regulation of gluconeogenic genes, while ectopic expression of TCF7L2 in DIO mice improved glucose tolerance. TCF7L2 was shown to bind to the gluconeogenic promoters, thereby interfering with the promoter occupancies of both CREB/CRTC2 and FoxO1 on their cognate sites. Furthermore, TCF7L2 haploinsufficiency promoted higher glucose levels with impaired glucose tolerance and increased hepatic glucose production in mice, and adenovirus-mediated TCF7L2 expression in the liver reversed the phenotype
glucose concentrations are normally maintained within a relatively narrow range, roughly 70-110 mg/dL (3.9-6.1 mmol/L) in the fasting state with transient higher excursions after a meal, despite wide variations in exogenous glucose delivery from meals and in endogenous glucose utilization by, for example, exercising muscle. Between meals and during fasting, plasma glucose levels are maintained by endogenous glucose production, hepatic glycogenolysis, and hepatic (and renal) gluconeogenesis (Fig. 345-1). Although hepatic glycogen stores are usually sufficient to maintain plasma glucose levels for approximately 8 h, this time period can be shorter if glucose demand is increased by exercise or if glycogen stores are depleted by illness or starvation. ...
CTRP3 (C1qTNF-related protein 3) plays an important role in regulating both embryonic cartilage development and postnatal longitudinal bone growth. CTRP3 stimulation leads to ERK1/2-dependent cell proliferation in human osteosarcoma cell lines. Circulating CTRP3 levels correlate inversely with circulating leptin levels in mice. Administration of sufficient recombinant CTRP3 suppressed hepatic glucose output via inhibition of gluconeogenesis and lowered blood glucose levels in both normal and ob/ob mice. Visceral adipocytes or monocytes secrete CTRP3 that antagonizes lipopolysaccharide (LPS) via a physical interaction with the TLR4/MD-2 receptor complex. These CTRP3 associated metabolically beneficial or anti-inflammatory features make CTRP3 to an interesting biomarker. ...
Livers role in glucose production. The liver plays an important role in gluconeogenesis the production of glucose (from non-sugar source) in response to need, as when you fast. It keeps glucose levels in balance increasing the levels when needed and turning off that spigot when you eat and the levels of glucose increase.. Ninety percent of endogenous (within the body) glucose production is in the liver, said Louet. He and his colleagues showed that mice that lack SRC-1 have hypoglycemia (too little sugar in their blood) when they have just eaten and when they are fasting.. Without SRC-1, glucose production is impaired in the animals, he said. When he and his colleagues restored the SRC-1 to the liver tissues in the animal, glucose levels in the blood became normal.. In collaboration with members of the laboratory of Dr. Christopher B. Newgard (another senior author of the report) at Duke, the team used metabolomics to see what was happening in the tissue and blood from the mice that ...
Hepatic glucose release into the circulation is vital for brain function and survival during periods of fasting and is modulated by an array of hormones that precisely regulate plasma glucose levels. We have identified a fasting-induced protein hormone that modulates hepatic glucose release. It is the C-terminal cleavage product of profibrillin, and we name it Asprosin. Asprosin is secreted by white adipose, circulates at nanomolar levels, and is recruited to the liver, where it activates the G protein-cAMP-PKA pathway, resulting in rapid glucose release into the circulation. Humans and mice with insulin resistance show pathologically elevated plasma asprosin, and its loss of function via immunologic or genetic means has a profound glucose- and insulin-lowering effect secondary to reduced hepatic glucose release. Asprosin represents a glucogenic protein hormone, and therapeutically targeting it may be beneficial in type II diabetes and metabolic syndrome. ...
Instead of accumulating inside the muscle cells, lactate produced by anaerobic fermentation is taken up by the liver. This initiates the other half of the Cori cycle. In the liver, gluconeogenesis occurs. From an intuitive perspective, gluconeogenesis reverses both glycolysis and fermentation by converting lactate first into pyruvate, and finally back to glucose. The glucose is then supplied to the muscles through the bloodstream; it is ready to be fed into further glycolysis reactions. If muscle activity has stopped, the glucose is used to replenish the supplies of glycogen through glycogenesis.[2 ...
Background: Bariatric surgeries are the most effective treatments for successful and sustained weight loss but individuals vary in treatment response. Understanding the neurobiological and behavioral mechanisms accounting for this variation could lead to the development of personalized therapeutic approaches and improve treatment outcomes. The primary objectives were to investigate changes in taste preferences and taste-induced brain responses after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) and to identify potential taste-related predictors of weight loss. Methods: Women, ages 18 to 55, with a body mass index ≥ 35 kg/m2 and approved for bariatric surgery at the Johns Hopkins Center for Bariatric Surgery were recruited for participation. Demographics, anthropometrics, liking ratings, and neural responses to varying concentrations of sucrose+fat mixtures were assessed pre- and post-surgery via visual analogue scales and functional magnetic resonance imaging. Results: ...
Although various research studies propose different ways how it works, the mechanism of action of metformin is still not well understood. Following are the best-known mechanisms to date. Metformin acts on the liver to improve blood glucose levels. Several studies provide evidence that metformin plays a role in reducing hepatic gluconeogenesis (synthesis of glucose from non-carbohydrate sources) and increasing insulin sensitivity. Gluconeogenesis is an energy-requiring process, consuming six ATPs per molecule of the glucose synthesized. Hepatocytes (liver cells) need to balance the demand for ATP which is primarily provided by the mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell). Metformin accumulates within mitochondria up to 1000-fold higher than in the extracellular medium. It is because metformin carries a positive charge which drives metformin into the cell and subsequently into the mitochondria. Within the mitochondria, metformin inhibits the Complex I of the respiratory chain which suppresses ATP ...

  • These data show that gluconeogenesis accounts for a substantial fraction of total glucose production even during the first 22 hours of a fast in humans. (sciencemag.org)
  • The production of glucose from non-carbohydrate compound is known as gluconeogenesis. (ittopic4.xyz)
  • While SNF1 is essential for induction of gluconeogenesis, T6P/TPS is required for inactivation of gluconeogenesis in the presence of glucose, downstream and independent of SNF1 activity and the Cat8 and Sip4 transcription factors. (thebiogrid.org)
  • It is likely that mycelia undergoing carbon starvation in the wild are common, and survival depends on the breakdown of cellular components resulting in carbon sources requiring gluconeogenesis. (asmscience.org)
  • During starvation gluconeogenesis maintains the blood glucose level. (medicoapps.rocks)
  • Gluconeogenesis (GNG) is a metabolic pathway that results in the generation of glucose from certain non-carbohydrate carbon substrates. (wikipedia.org)
  • Gluconeogenesis is the key metabolic pathway for homeostasis and survival. (coursehero.com)
  • However, on a ketogenic diet, because protein and calories are not scarce, any excess dietary protein will be readily utilized to bolster gluconeogenesis. (drhoffman.com)
  • Once gluconeogenesis is established, our bodies can readily make glucose from the protein we eat. (blogspot.com)
  • What is the recommended low carb diet daily protein amount to avoid gluconeogenesis? (allnaturalideas.com)
  • Will eating lots of protein if you're low carb lead to gluconeogenesis? (allnaturalideas.com)
  • Metformin suppresses gluconeogenesis by inhibiting mitochondrial glycerophosphate dehydrogenase. (nih.gov)
  • In addition, the HFru and HSu groups showed increased lipogenesis, gluconeogenesis, reduced beta-oxidation and antioxidant imbalance compared with the SC animals. (rsc.org)
  • Increased hepatic gluconeogenesis and decreased glucose uptake, and increased hepatic de novo lipogenesis in rat model of maternal diabetes. (alliedacademies.org)
  • I am using the term gluconeogenesis in this lecture to denote any new formation of carbohydrate from non-carbohydrates. (royalsocietypublishing.org)
  • Experimental evidence suggests that glucocorticoids and cAMP were two factors that were responsible for the long-term stimulation of renal gluconeogenesis observed in the diabetic rats. (asnjournals.org)
  • MAPK phosphatase 3 can promote gluconeogenesis by dephosphorylating FoxO1 in mouse liver and PP2A was reported to be a phosphatase which can dephosphorylate FoxO1/3a in vitro and in cells. (tamu.edu)
