The Endocrine System
|Epinephrine, norepinephrine, adrenocorticotropic hormone, and glucagon all initiate a cyclic AMP second messenger system in adipose cells enabling lipase to begin catalyzing the hydrolysis of fat, beginning its mobilization for fuel.|
Glycerol is a mere phosphorylation and oxidation away from dihydroxyacetone phosphate, so glycerol can be easily mobilized to enter either glycolysis or gluconeogenesis.
