Abstract

The tissue distribution of fructose-2,6-P2 and fructose-6-P,2-kinase in rats was determined. The highest concentration of fructose-2,6-P2 was found in liver, followed by brain, heart muscle, kidney, testis and skeletal muscle in decreasing order. Similar results were obtained with fructose-6-P,2-kinase activities in these tissues. Starvation, streptozotocin-induced diabetes or hypoglycemia lowers the fructose-2,6-P2 levels and fructose-6-P,2-kinase activity in the liver.
