Regulatory Mechanisms of Carbohydrate Metabolism contains the proceedings of the 11th meeting of the Federation of European Biochemical Societies, held at Copenhagen in 1977. The symposium is attended by thousands of biochemists and their associates to present and discuss the regulatory mechanisms of carbohydrate metabolism. The compendium records the nine sessions of the symposium encompassing 30 chapters of various discussions on the regulatory mechanisms of carbohydrate metabolism. Topics on metabolism of pyruvate in animals; mechanism of insulin secretion; the role of pyruvate in the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism; and control of muscle glycogen metabolism by protein kinases and phosphates are covered. Ketogenesis and carbohydrate metabolism; factors controlling glucagon secretion; and energy homeostasis and the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism are discussed as well. Biochemists, chemists, physicians, pharmacologists, and students of medicine will find this book a good source on insight.
