Low levels of lipopolysaccharide modulate mitochondrial oxygen consumption in skeletal muscle.


OBJECTIVE We have previously demonstrated that activation of toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) in skeletal muscle results in an increased reliance on glucose as an energy source and a concomitant decrease in fatty acid oxidation under basal conditions. Herein, we examined the effects of lipopolysaccharide (LPS), the primary ligand for TLR4, on mitochondrial… (More)
