The Impacts of Branched Chain Amino Acid Supplementation on Adipocyte Function
The branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are three essential amino acids: valine, leucine, and isoleucine. Adipose tissue has high rates of BCAA degradation and this has been shown to fuel normal function. Recent literature ...
The Importance of Transfer Receptor 1 in Adipose Tissue
Iron homeostasis is essential for maintaining cellular function in a variety of cell types. Transferrin receptor 1 (TfR1), which is expressed ubiquitously, facilitates cellular iron (Fe) uptake through receptor-mediated ...
