In this study, the investigators aimed at evaluating the role of sweet taste receptors in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). Intragastric administration of glucose, fructose or acesulfame-K were compared with placebo administration for their effects on gastrointestinal motility, gut hormone release (motilin, ghrelin, glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and insulin) and hunger feelings.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Basic Science
50g glucose, 25g fructose, 220mg acesulfame-K, 250mL tap water

This study investigates the effects of Canderel, an aspartame and acesulfame-k blend artificial sweetener powder, on post-postprandial blood glucose levels and appetite scores. Participant...
The study will consist of five occasions with one week in between. BOLD signal intensity of the hypothalamus will be measured using fMRI. Measurements will be done before and after drinkin...
The purpose of this study is to examine the influence of artificial sweeteners (aspartame, acesulfame K, sucralose) and carbohydrate sugars (glucose, fructose) on the release of gastrointe...
The objective is to investigate neuro-anatomical correlates of the regulation of energy intake by means of functional MRI. Administration of glucose as well as fructose is followed by func...
The metabolic effects of 7-day weight-maintenance diets containing 10% total energy as acacia honey or a fructose:glucose mixture will be assessed in a group of healthy male volunteers. Pr...
Earlier studies on glucose metabolism in B-cells suggested an active TCA cycle in both naïve B cells and differentiated IgA plasma cells. Glycolysis was shown to be more active in IgA plasma cells th...
The isomerization of glucose to fructose is a crucial interim step in the processing of biomass to renewable fuels and chemicals. This study investigates the copper catalyzed glucose-fructose-isomeriz...
Excessive consumption of sweets is a risk factor for metabolic syndrome. A major chemical feature of sweets is fructose. Despite strong ties between fructose and disease, the metabolic fate of fructos...
Though calorically equivalent to glucose, fructose appears to be more lipogenic, leading to dyslipidemia, fatty liver disease, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. To better understand how fructose i...
Monosaccharides, such as D-glucose and D-fructose, exist in aqueous solution as an equilibrium mixture of cyclic isomers and can be detected with boronic acids by the reversible formation of boronate ...
An enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of D-fructose 1,6-bisphosphate and water to D-fructose 6-phosphate and orthophosphate. EC 18.104.22.168.
An ester of glucose with phosphoric acid, made in the course of glucose metabolism by mammalian and other cells. It is a normal constituent of resting muscle and probably is in constant equilibrium with fructose-6-phosphate. (Stedman, 26th ed)
An autosomal recessive fructose metabolism disorder due to deficient fructose-1-phosphate aldolase (EC 22.214.171.124) activity, resulting in accumulation of fructose-1-phosphate. The accumulated fructose-1-phosphate inhibits glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis, causing severe hypoglycemia following ingestion of fructose. Prolonged fructose ingestion in infants leads ultimately to hepatic failure and death. Patients develop a strong distaste for sweet food, and avoid a chronic course of the disease by remaining on a fructose- and sucrose-free diet.
A hexose transporter that mediates FRUCTOSE transport in SKELETAL MUSCLE and ADIPOCYTES and is responsible for luminal uptake of dietary fructose in the SMALL INTESTINE.
An enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of D-glucose 6-phosphate and water to D-glucose and orthophosphate. EC 126.96.36.199.
Endocrine disorders are grouped into two categories: hormone imbalance - when a gland produces too much or too little of an endocrine hormone development of lesions (such as nodules or tumors) in the endocrine system, which may or may not affect...
