Hepatic Regulation of Glucose: Medical School Biochemistry

How does the liver keep from using up all of its glucose to create ATP like the other cells do? How does the liver maintain a glucose concentration similar to that of the blood, while other cells immediately convert glucose into Glucose-6-phosphate?
-Learn how the Michaelis constant (Km) of enzymes in the liver mediates activities differently than in other cells.
-Learn how Glucose transporters in the liver are distinguished from those in other cells
