try a general textbook on regulation of metabolism. In any case, there is a relationship between glycolysis/gluconeogenesis and (nor)epinephrine.

epinephrine prepare you to fight or flight in certain conditions. So, if you want to fight or flight in such condition, you need lots of energy, right? and then, where do your energy come from? the first pathway for energy extraction from glucose is the glycolysis... :razz:

well i get ur question.epiephrine blocks glycolysis temporarily so that glucose is available to all the cells without any distribution differences.the body needs more energy-right.but the purpose is not served if all the cells do not receive glucose.once the available glucose is distributed uniformly glycolysis proceeds.

Epinephrine stimulated PKA activation via cAMP, and, in turn, a cascade involving glycogen-sinthase (see web.indstate.edu/thcme/mwking/glycogen.html )
