The effects of fasting and refeeding on liver glycogen synthase and phosphorylase in obese and lean mice

, : The effects of fasting and refeeding on liver glycogen synthase and phosphorylase in obese and lean mice. Hormone and Metabolic Research 24(4): 161-166

The responses of hepatic glycogen synthase and phosphorylase to fasting and refeeding were assessed as part of an investigation into possible sites of insulin resistance in gold thioglucase (GTG) obese mice. The active forms glycogen synthase and phosphorylase (synthase I and phosphorylase a) and the total activity of these enzymes were estimated in lean and GTG mice over 48 h of food deprivation, and for 120 min after glucose average (1 g/kg wt). In lean mice there was a maximal reduction in hepatic glycogen content after 12 h of starvation and the activity of phosphorylation a decreased from 23.8 .+-. 1.9 to 6.8 .+-. 0.7 .mu.mol/g protein/min. These changes were accompanied by an increase in the activity of synthase I (from 0.14 .+-. 0.01 to 0.46 .+-. 0.04 .mu.mol/g protein/min). In obese mice, similar changes in enzyme activity occurred after 48 h of starvation. These changes were accompanied by a significant reduction in the hyperinsulinemia and hyperglycemia of the GTG mice. After glucose gavage in both lean and obese mice, the activity of synthase I further increased over the first 30 min and declined thereafter. The activity of phosphorylase a increased progressively after refeeding. Results from this study suggest that despite increased hepatic glycogen deposition, the responses of glycogen synthase and phosphorylase, in livers of obese mice, to fasting and refeeding are similar to those of control mice even in the presence of insulin resistance.
