McCance, Michael Maresh and David A. Sacks. © 2010 Blackwell Publishing needs of the body is stored, mainly as triglycerides in adipose tissue, or glycogen in the liver, muscle and other cells, or to a lesser extent as protein in muscle. Between meals, substrates are drawn from stores and used as needed to provide energy. The regulation of body fuels is a complex interaction of nutrients and hormones that ensure a continuous supply of energy substrates with intermittent refueling or feeding. Insulin and glucagon are the two major hormones that regulate fuel mobilization and storage.

After the ingestion of a mixed meal, carbohydrates are broken down into glucose and other monosaccharides and taken up by all tissues. Any glucose that is not needed immediately for glycolysis is converted to glycogen or triacylglyerol and stored in liver, muscle, and adipose tissue for later use. Lipids are hydrolyzed to fatty acids, resynthesized to triacylglyerol (TG), and stored in adipose tissue. (C) Chronic over-feeding. Chronic overnutrition and obesity can lead to adipocyte dysfunction and cellular inflammation.

54 The roles of many adipokines and fat-derived peptides in pregnancy have yet to be elucidated. NUTRIENT EXCESS AND METABOLIC DYSFUNCTION The expansion of adipose tissue due to chronic overnutrition and obesity can lead to adipocyte dysfunction, cellular inflammation, and insulin resistance (Fig. 1C). In addition to the metabolic dysfunction caused by excess adipose tissue, the process of accumulating excess adipose tissue leads to metabolic dysregulation. Gregor and Hotamisligil55 have proposed that a pathologic excess of nutrients and excessive lipid storage in the adipocyte leads to loss of mitochondrial function and endoplasmic reticular stress.
