Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Xylulose-5-phoshate (Xu-5-P) is a metabolite of glucose via the pentose phosphate pathway. In the presence of excess glucose, liver Xu-5-P may act as a signaling molecule that regulates the nuclear transport of carbohydrate response element binding protein (ChREBP), a transcription factor that induces the expression of enzymes involved in glucose metabolism and lipogenesis.
