For recreational purposes only, from here:
How toxic is palmitate at any concentration from zero to 0.4mmol/l if glucose is held at 5mmol/l? It's not.
How toxic is glucose at 25mmol/l in the presence of increasing palmitate? Glucose at this concentration becomes progressively more toxic within increasing but still physiological levels of palmitate.
Glucose at 25mmol/l is UTTERLY non physiological.
There is potentially a huge amount to discuss from this paper, one day, maybe. Even though they never delve in to the ETC, which they should do. But anyway, someone commented that papers using 5mmol/l glucose in the culture medium were rare. This one is a hen's tooth.
Back to thread next.
