Chapter 19

Regulation of Mammalian Fuel Metabolism


Key concepts section 19 1
KEY CONCEPTS: Section 19-1

  • Various organs are specialized for fuel storage, mobilization, and other functions.

  • Metabolites travel between tissues in interorgan metabolic pathways.




Metabolites travel between organs
Metabolites travel between organs.

  • Cori cycle

    • Transport of lactate from muscle to liver

  • Glucose-alanine cycle

    • Pyruvate is produced by muscle glycolysis.

    • Pyruvate is transaminated to make alanine.

    • Alanine is transported from the muscle to the liver.




Key concepts section 19 2
KEY CONCEPTS: Section 19-2

  • Pancreatic cells release insulin in response to increases in circulating glucose.

  • Insulin stimulates the uptake of glucose and the storage of metabolic fuels.

  • Glucagon and epinephrine promote glycogenolysis and lipolysis.

  • Hormones produced by adipose tissue and digestive organs regulate appetite and fuel metabolism.

  • AMP-dependent protein kinase activates ATP-producing pathways and inhibits ATP-consuming pathways.




Insulin is released in response to glucose
Insulin is released in response to glucose. hormones for fuel metabolism.

  • At physiological conditions, hexokinase is saturated.

  • Glucose phosphorylation by glucokinase varies with glucose concentration.

  • Glucokinase appears to be a glucose sensor, triggering insulin release.


Insulin promotes fuel use and storage
Insulin promotes fuel use and storage. hormones for fuel metabolism.


Impact of insulin on glut4
Impact of Insulin on GLUT4 hormones for fuel metabolism.

  • Insulin triggers vesicle fusion to the plasma membrane.

  • Glucose transporter proteins (GLUT4) are presented to the cell surface.



Glucagon and epinephrine trigger fuel metabolism
Glucagon and epinephrine trigger fuel metabolism. enzymes.

Structure of Glucagon

  • Glucagon is synthesized and released when blood glucose concentrations drop below 5 mM.




Key concepts section 19 3
KEY CONCEPTS: Section 19-3 enzymes.

  • The body breaks down glycogen, fats, and proteins to generate glucose, fatty acids, and ketone bodies during starvation.

  • Obesity appears to result from metabolic, environmental, and genetic factors.

  • In diabetes, either a lack of insulin or the inability to respond to it leads to hyperglycemia.

  • The metabolic syndrome is characterized by obesity and insulin resistance.



Obesity has multiple causes
Obesity has multiple causes. starvation.

  • Obesity is impacted by several factors.

    • Diet

    • Metabolism

    • Environmental

    • Genetic

  • The hormone leptin may establish the human body’s set point weight.

  • Distinctions in brown vs. white adipose tissue.


Diabetes is characterized by hyperglycemia
Diabetes is characterized by hyperglycemia. starvation.

  • Diabetics excrete large amounts of sugar in their urine.

  • Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease.

  • In Type 2 diabetes, the body does not respond to insulin.





The metabolic syndrome links diabetes and obesity
The metabolic syndrome links diabetes and obesity. formation.

  • Metabolic syndrome can be characterized by high visceral fat.

  • High levels of dietary fats can lead to:

    • Fat accumulation in adipose tissue

    • Impairment of GLUT4 translocation

    • Impediment of glucose uptake

    • Increased gluconeogenesis

  • Weight loss improves symptoms of metabolic syndrome.
