Effects of Fructose on Purine Nucleotide Metabolism in Isolated Rat Hepatocytes
In recent years it became apparent that fructose metabolism in the liver tissue has considerable effects on purine nucleotide metabolism. There is ample evidence that fructose metabolism is associated with acceleration of nucleotide degradation (1–5) and evidence is accumulating (6–8), indicating an acceleration effect of fructose also on purine synthesis.
