    Jusr read a short article on Medscape http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/854957 which I thought might be of interest, and perhaps relevant to ME??

    It's about CPT1 which is a molecule expressed on the mitochondrial membrane that is involved in the transport of lipids over the mitochondrial membrane where they are metabolized in the Kreb cycle. The hypothesis is that MS may be due to a downstream effect of an underlying lipid metabolism problem that is presumably genetic.
