Abstract

Glycogenic and glycolytic enzymes function systematically in the cell to establish the regulated flow of each of the metabolic pathways. Chaikoff et. al. [1] reported that enzyme activities of glycogenesis and glycolysis are markedly disturbed in the liver of alloxan diabetic rats. In order to elucidate the effect of xylitol on glucose metabolism [2], we have measured intermediates of glycogenesis and glycolysis in diabetic liver, in the presence or absence of added xylitol.
