PURPOSE Alterations in bladder smooth muscle (BSM) metabolism due to alterations in plasma lipid levels may be important with the increasingly high fat diets eaten by most Americans. To determine the susceptibility of BSM to lipotoxicity we examined the normal pattern of mitochondrial substrate selection in BSM and the ability of BSM to respond to changes… CONTINUE READING
