Oxygen conductance to the tissues determines aerobic metabolic performance in most eukaryotes but has cost/benefit tradeoffs. Here we examine in lowland populations of a butterfly a genetic polymorphism affecting oxygen conductance via the hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) pathway, which senses intracellular

The interactions between the intracellular metabolome, fluxome and growth rate of Escherichia coli after sudden glycolytic/gluconeogenic substrate shifts are studied based on pulses of different substrates to an aerobic glucose-limited steady-state (dilution rate=0.1h(-1)).

Macrophages activated by the Gram-negative bacterial product lipopolysaccharide switch their core metabolism from oxidative phosphorylation to glycolysis. Here we show that inhibition of glycolysis with 2-deoxyglucose suppresses lipopolysaccharide-induced interleukin-1β but not tumour-necrosis factor-α in mouse macrophages.
