Altered regulation of energy metabolism is the hallmark of many diseases that have a significant burden of cardiovascular events. Diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and dyslipidemias are important risk factors for the development of cardiovascular disease. Balancing energy metabolism to meet the body’s fuel request requires the tight coordination of many different processes in different organs and cell types. Nuclear receptors act as master regulators of these complex processes due to their ability… CONTINUE READING
