Abstract

Gluconeogenesis and palmitate incorporation into triacylglycerols and phosphatidylcholine were measured in isolated hepatocytes from control and ethanol-treated rats. Basal gluconeogenesis and its hormonal response decreased in hepatocytes from ethanol-treated animals; palmitate incorporation into triacylglycerols increased. In ethanol-treated rat liver, 45Ca2+ uptake and methylating capacity were reduced, and the hormonal response exhibited differences in binding parameters of insulin.
