Glycogen production during the first hour of an oral glucose tolerance test. Experimental data (Exp) and the glucose profile (a) used as model input are taken from Niewoehner and Nuttall [6]. Insulin (b) and glucagon concentrations (c) were computed by means of the GHT function (Fig. 2). The bars depict the glucose exchange flux (= net glucose uptake) (d) and the cellular flux of glucose into the glycogen store (e) in units of glucose moieties for the first hour of an oral glucose tolerance test
