Figure 1: Glucose Contributions to Myocardial Dysfunction During Heart Failure

Increased glucose uptake channels carbon into the polyol, PPP, and HBP pathways; this likely contributes to mitochondrial dysfunction, genetic reprogramming, and impaired calcium handling during heart failure. HBP = hexosamine biosynthesis; PPP = pentose phosphate pathway; ROS = reactive oxygen species.
