Reexamination of Glucose-6-Phosphatase Activity in the Brain in Vivo: No Evidence for a Futile Cycle
This study was a rebuttal of Huang and Veech's 1984 paper, which questioned the role of glucose-6-phosphatase in the
brain, and which was used to argue against the validity of the deoxyglucose method for measuring local utilization of glucose
in human and animal brains. The controversy wasn't really resolved until 1988-89.
