Although there is no difference in viral control or CD4 count and even an improvement in lipometabolism with this strategy, long-term studies of the changes in the homeostasis of HIV-1 reservoir are needed.[sup][57],[58] Furthermore, new antiretroviral agents are urgently needed to act directly on the HIV-1 reservoir.
Liu and colleagues investigated glycol- and lipometabolism in mice with different backgrounds fed with slightly distinct diet formula (high fat and high sugar compared to high fat) and found the protective role of C5aR2 in the development of atherosclerosis [95].
The main function of carnitines is to transport long chain fatty acids from the outer mitochondrial membrane to the inner membrane as a carrier to promote [beta] oxidation of fatty acids and to promote the conversion of lipometabolism into energy [24].
In addition to their importance as regulatory elements in gene expression, the capacity of miRNAs to be transported from cell to cell implicates them in a panoply of pathophysiological processes that include antiviral defense, tumorigenesis, lipometabolism, and glucose metabolism [16].
