Interaction Information:

Comment In arterial endothelial cells free fatty acid-induced increase in ROS activates the same damaging pathways seen with high glucose: AGEs, PKC, the hexosamine pathway (GlcNAc), and NFkappaB. Free fatty acid–induced overproduction of superoxide also activates a variety of proinflammatory signals previously implicated in hyperglycemia-induced vascular damage, and inactivates 2 important antiatherogenic enzymes: prostacyclin synthase and eNOS.
