The central carbon metabolism of the liver enables the remarkable homeostasis of numerous plasma metabolites under a wide variety of nutritional regimes and physiological states. Examples are the synthesis of glucose by gluconeogenesis and synthesis of ketone-body from fatty acids under fasting conditions or the postprandial storage of glucose and lipids in terms of glycogen and triglycerides.

In order to better understand the regulatory mechanism accounting for the switch between alternative metabolic modes depending on physiological state and available nutrients we developed a detailed kinetic model of the central metabolism of human hepatocytes integrated with the hormonal control by insulin, glucagon and epinephrine.
