Chemical tracers reveal oxygen-dependent switch in cellular pathway to fat (Nature Chemical Biology)

By Tien Nguyen, Department of Chemistry Using tracer compounds, scientists have been able to track the cellular production of NADPH, a key coenzyme for making fat, through a pathway that has never been measured directly before. By tracking this pathway, known as malic enzyme metabolism, which is one of a few recognized routes to make … Continue reading Chemical tracers reveal oxygen-dependent switch in cellular pathway to fat (Nature Chemical Biology)
