Figure 5

Urea and glucose productions from glutamine and ammonia in 2 different zones along the hepatic parenchyma as a function of the extracellular ammonia concentrations. The corresponding experimental data Jant and Jret in Table 1 were used to calculate v1R and v2A using equations (3) to (5) and the numerical procedures described in the text; c1R and c2A were calculated from the rates of ammonia infusion, the total flow and the arterial flow as described in the text.
