Efficient use of energy in anoxia-tolerant plants with focus on germinating rice seedlings.
Sydney, Australia. In New Phytol, Apr 2015
In quiescent cells with little polymer synthesis and associated PPi formation, the PPi required by the vacuolar H(+) -PPi ase and UDPG pyrophosphorylase involved in sucrose mobilisation via sucrose synthase might be produced by conversion of ATP to PPi through reversible glycolytic enzymes, presumably pyruvate orthophosphate dikinase.
Mechanisms of blood glucose homeostasis.
Brussels, Belgium. In J Inherit Metab Dis, 1989
When glycogen synthesis is intense, the concentrations of UDPG and of glucose 6-phosphate in the liver decrease, allowing a net glucose uptake by the liver.
