1. The effectiveness of gluconeogenic precursors in hepatocytes isolated from 18 day old chick embryos is:Lactate much much greater than pyruvate greater than alanine = glutamine greater than glycerol and other amino acids. This result is qualitatively and quantitatively similar to hepatocytes isolated after hatching. 2. In the presence of endogenous glycogenolysis, conversion of [U-14C]lactate to glucose was used to estimate gluconeogenic flux and its control by hormones. 3. Glucagon failed to stimulate lactate gluconeogenesis although simultaneously increasing glycogenolysis. Insulin had no effects on gluconeogenesis.
