Abstract

Macrophages are now considered to be important players in various inflammatory diseases as well as tumor progression. Emerging evidence reveals that macrophage metabolic features are deeply associated with their immune functions. Understanding the interaction between cellular metabolism and immune signaling pathways in macrophages can help us to develop appropriate therapeutic approaches for inflammatory diseases. In this review, we briefly summarize key metabolic features of M1 and M2 macrophages as well as signaling interactions between major metabolic molecules with TLRs and NLRs. Current knowledges of cellular metabolism are focused on macrophages in various disease situations including sepsis, atherosclerosis, obesity, tuberculosis and cancer. Novel insights and present targets for regulating macrophage metabolism are also discussed.
