Glucose-6-phosphatase induction by triamcinolone in human liver

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Glucose-6-phosphatase activity of the liver was found to be markedly subnormal in two cases of glycogen storage disease type III (amylo-1, 6-glucosidase deficiency). Induction of glucose-6-phosphatase activity could be obtained by triamcinolone administration. This suggests that the subnormal activity of this enzyme found in these cases was due to a regulatory disorder of enzyme biosynthesis and not due to a structural mutation.
