A NEW METABOLISM MODEL FOR HUMAN SKELETAL MUSCLE

Dayu Lv, Bill Goodwine

Abstract

The human body metabolic regulatory system is very complex, containing thousands of metabolites involved in biochemical reactions. Glucose metabolism is one of the key procedures maintaining daily energy balance. Mobility of glucose is implemented by glucose transporters with different transporting characteristics locally, which are distributed in cells of brain, liver, pancreas, kidney and skeletal muscle, etc. This paper presents a component of a new model that is focused on skeletal muscle which consume energy consistently due to either slight movement or high-energy demanded activities, such as running or swimming. This paper presents a mathematical model where glucose, insulin, glucose-6-phosphate (G6P), etc. are introduced and connected by ordinary differential equations.
