Regulation of glycolysis and fatty acid synthesis from glucose in sheep adipose tissue

, : Regulation of glycolysis and fatty acid synthesis from glucose in sheep adipose tissue. Biochemical Journal 206(3): 577-586

1. The following were measured in adipose-tissue pieces, obtained from 7-9 month-old sheep, before or after the tissue pieces had been maintained in tissue culture for 24 h: the rates of synthesis from glucose of fatty acids, acylglycerol glycerol, pyruvate and lactate; the rate of glucose oxidation to CO(2); the rate of glucose oxidation via the pentose phosphate pathway; the activities of hexokinase, glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase, phosphofructokinase, pyruvate kinase, pyruvate dehydrogenase and ATP citrate lyase; the intra- and extra-cellular water content; the concentration of various metabolites and ATP, ADP and AMP. 2. The proportion of glucose carbon converted into the various products in sheep adipose tissue differs markedly from that observed in rat adipose tissue. 3. There was a general increase in the rate of glucose utilization by the adipose-tissue pieces after maintenance in tissue culture; largest changes were seen in the rates of glycolysis and fatty acid synthesis from glucose. These increases are paralleled by an increase in pyruvate kinase activity. There was no change in the activities of the other enzymes as measured, although the net flux through all the enzymes increased. 4. Incubation of fresh adipose-tissue pieces for 2-6h led to an increase in the affinity of pyruvate kinase for phosphoenolpyruvate. 5. The rate of pyruvate production by glycolysis was greater than the activity of pyruvate dehydrogenase of the tissue. 6. The results suggest that both pyruvate kinase and pyruvate dehydrogenase have important roles in restricting the utilization of glucose carbon for fatty acid synthesis in sheep adipose tissue.
