Lipid metabolism is dysregulated in a mouse model of diabetes.
Much evidence for diabetes mellitus being associated with dysregulated lipid metabolism has been accrued from studies using blood plasma. However, the systemic dysregulation these results point to is not understood. This study used Lipid Traffic Analysis on data from a mouse model of diabetes to test the hypothesis that the systemic control of lipid metabolism differed in a model of diabetes. This provided eidence for changes in the systemic control of both triglyceride and phospholipid metabolism that were not attributable to dietary intake. This supports the conclusion that diabetes is a systemic condition associated with dysregulated lipid metabolism through several pathways.
