The aqueous glucose concentration of rat milk is about 0.29mM, apparently unmodified by prolonged storage in the gland. Infused 3-O-methylglucose reaches a milk concentration similar to its measured mammary intracellular concentration. Milk glucose may therefore reflect its intracellular concentration in the mammary secretory cell.
