International Textbook of Diabetes Mellitus, 4th Ed., Excerpt #72: Regulation of Glucose Metabolism in Liver Part 8 of 11


Linking molecular and metabolic regulation of hepatic glucose metabolism: Cross-talk between metabolism and molecular biology is an emerging mechanism of metabolic regulation and is particularly relevant to the control glucose metabolism in liver. Some transcription factors and nuclear receptors are activated in response to metabolites. During fasting lipid metabolites are released that activate PPARα and induce the gene expression of oxidative metabolism.
