The i.v. administration of streptozotocin (40 or 80 mg/kg body wt) decreases muscle glycogen in fasted rats within a few hours and impairs glycogen accumulation after refeeding. This may help to elucidate the simultaneous increase in plasma glucose levels. The possible role of changes in the level of insulin is discussed.
