gluconeogenesis

gluconeogenesis The synthesis of glucose from noncarbohydrate sources, such as fat and protein. This occurs when the glycogen supplies in the liver are exhausted. The pathway is essentially a reversal of glycolysis from pyruvate to glucose and it can utilize many sources, including amino acids, glycerol, and Krebs cycle intermediates. Large-scale protein and fat catabolism normally occurs only in those suffering from starvation or certain endocrine disorders.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

gluconeogenesis

gluconeogenesis The synthesis of glucose from non-carbohydrate precursors. Any compound that can be converted into one of the intermediates of glycolysis is potentially glucogenic. These include amino acids, fatty acids, glycerol, and intermediates of the citric acid cycle.
