Studies of Venous Blood Pyruvate and Lactate Levels During Oral and Intravenous Glucose Tolerance Tests in Women Receiving Oral Contraceptives
Pyruvate occupies a key position in intermediary metabolism being situated on both the glycolytic and gluconeogenetic pathways. Unlike the majority of the phosphorylated intermediairies, appreciable amounts of pyruvate diffuse across cell membranes and it is assumed that blood pyruvate levels to some extent reflect intracellular events.
