Oxidation of D-[U-(14)C] glucose and [1,12-(14)C] dodecanedioic acid by pancreatic islets from Goto-Kakizaki rats.


PMID 11544559

Abstract

In pancreatic islets from hereditarily diabetic GK rats, [1,12 -(14)C] dodecanedioic acid (5.0 mM) was oxidized at a rate representing about 5 % of that of D-[U - (14)C] glucose (8.3 mM). Dioic acid and hexose failed to exert any significant reciprocal effects on their respective oxidation. The production of (14)CO(2) from [1,12 -(14)C] dodecanedioic acid was proportional to its concentration in the 0.2 - 5.0 mM range. These results were essentially comparable to those obtained in islets from control rats. They extend, therefore, to GK rats the knowledge that dodecanedioic acid acts as a nutrient in pancreatic islet cells.
