Abstract

Metabolic adaptation is a key component of macrophage plasticity and polarization, instrumental to their function in homeostasis, immunity, and inflammation. Macrophage products also impact metabolism, as illustrated by obesity-associated pathologies. Defining the mechanisms regulating macrophage metabolic activity and orchestration of metabolism by macrophages is crucial to pathology and therapeutic intervention.
