BCKAs are glucogenic
(KIV and KMV) or ketogenic (KIC and KMV) precursors (1) and can regulate protein turnover (2-4).
This is in accordance with Seal and Parker (1994), who reported that increasing supply of glucogenic
substrates did not influence the plasma glucose TR in steers.
Reference literature on subclinical ketosis associated with subclinical mastitis in recently calved cattle and effect of glucogenic
precursor in the treatment of subclinical ketosis was rare.
During gluconeogenesis, glucose is made from the glucogenic
amino acids (all amino acids except lysine and leucine are at least partially glucogenic
) in protein and glycerol in fat.
In the current experiment, the levels of blood Asn were lower in the cows with fatty liver than in the control cows, which implies that, as a glucogenic
amino acid, Asn can be metabolized by gluconeogenesis or the TCA cycle.
Calcium propionate has the property of being glucogenic
as well as providing supplemental calcium.
Gluconeogenesis involves compounds called glucogenic
precursors that can be used to synthesize glucose.
Effect of body fatness and glucogenic
supplement on lipid and protein mobilization and plasma leptin in dairy cows.
Previous research suggests that increasing the glucogenic
2008) reported a decrease in serum ketone concentrations of postpartum range cows fed a glucogenic
precursor in the form of propionate salt, and other glucogenic
agents such as propylene glycol or glycerol.
This result might be related to a greater availability of starch from CGW, which provided more glucogenic
precursors (propionate) than starch from GC.
The increasing effect has been attributed to an increased supply of glucogenic
precursors resulting from changes in the pattern of rumen fermentation (Phipps et al.
