Astrocytes play a critical role in the regulation of brain metabolic responses to activity. One detailed mechanism proposed to describe the role of astrocytes in some of these responses has come to be known as the astrocyte‐neuron lactate shuttle hypothesis (ANLSH). Although controversial, the original concept of a coupling mechanism between neuronal activity and glucose utilization that involves an activation of aerobic glycolysis in astrocytes and lactate consumption by neurons provides a… Expand
Astrocyte‐neuron crosstalk regulates the expression and subcellular localization of carbohydrate metabolism enzymes
TLDR
The results provide the first experimental evidence that the astrocyte‐neuron crosstalk substantially affects the expression of basal metabolic enzymes in the both types of cells and influences their subcellular localization inAstrocytes. Expand
Astrocytes and energy metabolism
TLDR
The astrocytes energy metabolism may help understanding neuron-astrocyte interactions, and it is thought that the release of gliotransmitters into the extracellular space by regulated exocytosis supports a significant part of communication between astroCytes and neurons. Expand
Astrocyte - neuron lactate shuttle may boost more ATP supply to the neuron under hypoxic conditions - in silico study supported by in vitro expression data
TLDR
It is shown that under both normoxic and hypoxic conditions in a given time period the ANLSH model does indeed provide the neuron with more ATP than in the classical view, but this is not the case for the astrocyte in the long term. Expand
Metabolic Communication between Astrocytes and Neurons via Bicarbonate-Responsive Soluble Adenylyl Cyclase
TLDR
A recently cloned bicarbonate sensor, soluble adenylyl cyclase (sAC), is highly expressed in astrocytes and becomes activated in response to HCO₃⁻ entry via the electrogenic NaHCO⁃ cotransporter (NBC). Expand
Fatty Acids in Energy Metabolism of the Central Nervous System
TLDR
This review made an attempt to reconcile β-oxidation of fatty acids by astrocytic mitochondria with the existing hypothesis on regulation of aerobic glycolysis and suggests that, under condition of neuronal excitation, both metabolic pathways may exist simultaneously. Expand
Acute feedback control of astrocytic glycolysis by lactate
TLDR
It is reported here that the rate of glycolysis in cultured mice astrocytes can be acutely modulated by physiological changes in extracellular lactate, and it is proposed that lactate serves as a fast negative feedback signal limiting its own production by astroCytes and therefore the amplitude of the lactate surge. Expand
Astrocytes as the glucose shunt for glutamatergic neurons at high activity: an in silico study.
TLDR
The Glucose Shunt Hypothesis (GSH) is posit that during high activity, the inhibition of the phosphofructokinase (PFK) enzyme in neuron impairs neuronal glycolysis, enabling the process by which lactate effluxed by astrocytes is taken up by glutamatergic neurons, whereas at low activity, glucose remains the preferred substrate for neurons.

Brain energetics (thought needs food)
  • L. Pellerin
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Current opinion in clinical nutrition and metabolic care
  • 2008
TLDR
A new concept based on metabolic compartmentalization between astrocytes and neurons is establishing itself as the leading paradigm that opens new perspectives in areas such as functional brain imaging and regulation of energy homeostasis. Expand
Aerobic Production and Utilization of Lactate Satisfy Increased Energy Demands Upon Neuronal Activation in Hippocampal Slices and Provide Neuroprotection Against Oxidative Stress
TLDR
The data generated by these experiments support the hypothesis that lactate, not pyruvate, is the end-product of cerebral aerobic glycolysis and imply that NADH can be utilized as an endogenous scavenger of reactive oxygen species (ROS) to provide neuroprotection against ROS-induced neuronal damage. Expand
Why does the brain (not) have glycogen?
TLDR
The hypothesis that brain glycogen is a critical determinant in the modulation of carbohydrate supply at the cellular level is proposed, which would favor glucose channeling to activated neurons, supplementing the already rich neuron‐astrocyte metabolic and functional partnership with important implications for the energy compounds used to sustain neuronal activity.

Neurotransmitters regulate energy metabolism in astrocytes: implications for the metabolic trafficking between neural cells.
TLDR
Since lactate can support neuronal activity and synaptic function in vitro, the possibility should be considered that glucose uptake by the brain parenchyma occurs predominantly into astrocytes which subsequently release lactate for the use of neurons. Expand

TLDR
Several elements support the concept of a lactate shuttle between astrocytes and neurons in the central nervous system, and lactate is emerging as a valuable intercellular exchange molecule in different systems including the brain where it might be an essential element of neuron-glia metabolic interactions.

A mathematical model of compartmentalized energy metabolism between neurons and astrocytes is developed, showing that current experimental data on lactate kinetics are compatible with the ANLS hypothesis, and that it is essential to assess the neuronal andAstrocytic NADH/NAD+ ratio changes to test the AN LS hypothesis.
