Choose the correct Answer
1) Glucose is mainly absorbed by passive diffusion/ active transport.
2) GLUT-4 transporters are present in adipose tissues/red blood cells.
3) Insulin promotes Glycolysis/Glycogenolysis.
4) Lactase/ Lactate dehydrogenase is deficient in lactose intolerance.
5) In type 2 diabetes mellitus, the peripheral cells become oversensitive/ Insensitive to the effect of insulin.
6) Phosphorylase enzyme is active in the phosphorylated / dephosphorylated form.
7) Sorbitol is produced by the oxidation/reduction of glucose.
8) Glucokinase/ Hexokinase can regulate the blood glucose level.
9) Chronic alcohol ingestion can produce hypoglycemia/hyperglycemia.
10) Glucose-6- phosphatase / Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase is deficient in Von- Gierke’s disease.
11) More the concentration of 2,3bisphosphoglycerate more/less will be the unloading of oxygen to the peripheral tissues.
