The altered activities of the key enzymes of carbohydrate metabolism such as hexokinase, pyruvate kinase, lactate dehydrogenase, glucose-6-phosphatase, fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, glycogen synthase and glycogen phosphorylase in liver of diabetic rats were significantly reverted to near normal levels by the administration of tangeretin.
Glycogen phosphorylase b is a stored, inactive form of the enzyme, and is activated to glycogen phosphorylase a to release glucose or phosphorylated glucose units from glycogen (Friedman 1985).
Galactosaemia, in fact, often results in hypoglycaemia caused by hepatic accumulation of galactose-1phosphate, which inhibits enzymes of glycogenolysis; including glucose-6-phosphatase, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, phosphoglucomutase and glycogen phosphorylase.
