Different physiological parameters (plasma glucose and insulin levels, lipoproteins-cholesterol levels, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (PEPCK), 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase (HMG CoA reductase) and isolated aorta relaxation of both species were measured and compared.
Transcripts for phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (Pepck) and glucose 6-phosphatase (G6pase), which encode gluconeogenic enzymes, were also significantly reduced in the liver of KO mice (Figure 2C).
