Effects of Glycerol on Purine Metabolism in Rat Liver Cells
Glycerol phosphorylation in liver cells produces a rapid depletion of inorganic phosphate (Pi) and adenine nucleotides (1–3). These effects are similar to those produced by fructose (3,4). In addition, fructose administration to mice or humans also causes an increase in purine synthesis de novo (5–7).
