#Fructose reprogrammes glutamine-dependent oxidative metabolism to support LPS-induced inflammation

Fructose intake has increased substantially throughout the developed world and is associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Currently, our understanding of the metabolic and mechanistic implications for immune cells, such as monocytes and macrophages, exposed to elevated levels of dietary fructose is limited. Here, we show that fructose reprograms cellular metabolic pathways to favour glutaminolysis and oxidative metabolism, which are … Continue reading #Fructose reprogrammes glutamine-dependent oxidative metabolism to support LPS-induced inflammation
