The Hexosamine Pathway

Currently there is no wikipedia page for this part of biochemistry and knowledge of it still appears to be developing. It seems to be related to insulin signalling and insulin resistence, and over-expression of the pathway seems to cause IR as suggested by this paper.

This next study was also an interesting find, some AA's are produced in vivo in adipocytes, glutamine being one.
