- ... Rats are often starved overnight for many different reasons. Overnight starvation causes loss of body and liver weights, depletion of liver glycogen, decrease of blood glucose and loss of amino acids because of gluconeogenesis. Providing pure sucrose cubes as the sole overnight nutrient is a simple, inexpensive way to empty the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, while minimizing liver changes and preven ...

- ... In mammals, clearance of desialylated serum glycoproteins to the liver is mediated by a galactoseâspecific hepatic lectin, the âasialoglycoprotein receptorâ. In humans, serum glycoprotein glycans are usually capped with sialic acid, which protects these proteins against hepatic uptake. However, in most other species, an additional noncharged terminal element with the structure GalÎ±1â3GalÎ ...
