  author={Justin I Odegaard and A. D. Chawla},
Mammals possess a remarkable ability to maintain and defend a constant internal milieu against diverseenvironmental threats. Unsurprisingly, the two systems tasked with these duties, metabolism and immunity,have evolved to share a common modular architecture that allows extensive bidirectional communicationand coordination. Indeed, recent observations have highlighted numerous functionally critical immuneregulatory modules located within diverse metabolic circuits. In this review, we discuss… CONTINUE READING
