ChREBP is translocated to the nucleus and binds to DNA after dephosphorylation of a p-Ser and a p-Thr residue by PP2A, which itself is activated by Xylulose-5-phosphate (Xu5p).
[21] Xylitol can also be converted to cholesterol when xylitol is metabolized in the liver to become xylulose-5-phosphate, which is an immediate branch of the pentose phosphate pathway.
Besides, the pentose phosphate pathway, a shunt from the glycolytic pathway, was also activated proved by the increase of d-erythrose-4-phosphate, xylulose-5-phosphate, sedoheptulose-7-phosphate, ribose-5-phosphate, and NADPH levels (Figure 3(i)).
[57] reported that enhanced activity of the hexose monophosphate shunt pathway leads to intrahepatocyte increase in xylulose-5-phosphate, which in turn activates phosphoprotein phosphatase A2, a main activator of Chrebp.
