Serum glucose and tissue glycogen dynamics in paraquat intoxication

Serum glucose and tissue glycogen dynamics in paraquat intoxication

Medical Science Research 16(8): 393-394

The effects of 20 mg/kg body wt. paraquat on rat serum glucose and liver, skeletal muscle and renal cortex glycogen content were studied in rats allowed food and water or water only. Serum glucose and renal and skeletal muscle glycogen were higher in paraquat-injected rats than in fed or starved controls, while hepatic glycogen contents were in the order fed controls > paraquat-injected > starved controls.
