Increased hepatic glycogen synthetase and decreased phosphorylase in trained rats
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
Rats were either physically trained by a 12 wk swimming program or were freely eating or weight matched, sedentary controls. Trained rats had a higher relative liver weight and total hepatic glycogen synthetase (EC 18.104.22.168) activity and a lower phosphorylase (EC 22.214.171.124) activity than the other groups of rats. These changes may partly explain the demonstrated training-induced increase in glucose tolerance. None of the findings could be ascribed to differences in foold intake or body weight.
