A little update on the adventures of a man we call Leptin Man here at The Asylum, Jack Kruse. I skimmed his latest (6 page!) manifesto, and near as I can figure, his focus is on ATP stores. His metabolic pathway du jour is the Pentose Phosphate Pathway (PPP). Among many many words, he writes:
TRUTH BOMB: This pathway has only a few major endpoints, but they are all massively important for human life. It is designed to optimally restore RNA and DNA synthesis by providing maximum recycling of ATP; and it allows for optimal formation of bio-energenic substrates to make replenish the mitochondria’s ability to increase total adenine nucleotides to re-establish optimal ATP stores from beta oxidation of fats.
