Lipotoxicity of palmitic acid induced changes in mitochondrial Ca2+ levels. a) Hypothetical model of calcium over flux from ER to mitochondria and metabolic complications during lipotoxicity. b) Mitochondrial Ca2+ after 3 h of treatment with palmitic acid and the normalised values of Rhod-2 AM fluorescence are shown in the histogram. Data are mean ± SEM, and values are from three independent experiments
