Fuel Storage, Distribution, and Usage
<emphasis role="bold">Fuel Stores</emphasis> Question: Under normal physiological conditions, in what form are fuels stored in the body? Fuel is stored primarily as droplets of triglyceride in adipocytes, and as glycogen particles in both hepatocytes and skeletal myocytes; other tissues have little fuel storage capacity and primarily rely on a continuous supply of fuel from the liver via the bloodstream.
