Regulation by insulin of glucose metabolism in mammary gland of anaesthetized lactating rats. Stimulation of phosphofructokinase-1 by fructose 2,6-bisphosphate and activation of acetyl-CoA carboxylase.


ABSTRACT: The effect of insulin on glucose metabolism in mammary gland was studied by the euglycaemic/hyperinsulinaemic-clamp technique. Measurement of metabolite concentrations and enzyme activities in the mammary gland suggests two sites of action of insulin: phosphofructokinase-1 and acetyl-coA carboxylase. The increase in phosphofructokinase-1 activity could be linked to the 2-fold increase in fructose 2,6-bisphosphate concentration, since no change in maximal activity and in sensitivity of the enzyme toward fructose 6-phosphate was detected in vitro.
