New insights into control of metabolism by transporters

June 16, 2020 | Duration: 40 mins.

A lot can go wrong when a metabolic pathway is disrupted. The talks in this virtual event cover studies of transporter deficiencies linked to disease. They include a link between zinc deficiency and fatty liver in mice and why calcium transporter activation may help liver cells function during acute lipotoxicity.

The talks in this virtual event were originally programmed to take place as an in-person Spotlight Session at the 2020 ASBMB Annual Meeting.


Chair: Tomasz Bednarski

The effect of SERCA2 activation on liver metabolism during acute lipotoxicity in vivo
