Kick

a brisk mechanical stimulus.

idioventricular kick, the increased contractility of the initially contracting ventricular fibres which, by stretching the later contracting fibres, increases their force of contraction.

I think the answer is in location . GNG takes place in liver where glucose is synthesised and transported to peripheral tissues where is it utilised. And it uses alanine as the solely amino acid, because it's freely exchangeable with pyruvate and lactate.

When does gluconeogenesis kick in during physical activity?

Hello, I'm a dietetics student, and my course is really unclear about gluconeogenesis regulation, and exactly WHEN it happens. What my coursebook teaches me is that glycogenolysis is the main purveyor of energy during physical exercise, and it is triggered by LOW INSULIN, HIGH GLUCAGON and HIGH ADRE...
