Figure 5

Computer-simulated values for myocardial rates of (A) net glycogen breakdown, (B) exogenous glucose uptake, (C) conversion of lactate to pyruvate, (D) pyruvate oxidation (conversion of pyruvate to acetyl-CoA), (E) conversion of pyruvate to lactate, and (F) net lactate release after 7, 30, 90, and 180 minutes of the onset of flow reduction plotted as a function of the myocardial blood flow.
