Dyslipidemia Metabolic Signaling Pathway Identified By Researchers

Dyslipidemia's metabolic signaling pathway, a nutrient sensing pathway which is involved in the disruption of cellular lipid homeostasis, has been identified by researchers.

The researchers from Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM), including Yu Li, PhD, and other colleagues, used obese and insulin-resistant mice who were fed a diet high in fat and sucrose, reports

This pathway may also have implications for the health benefits of polyphenols-containing foods against fatty liver, hyperlipidemia, and atherosclerosis associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes...
