Objective: As a result of the heightened reactivity fructose demonstrates compared to glucose and our current knowledge of glucose advanced glycation end-products, the aim of this research was to further elucidate the proinflammatory pathways involved in the response to fru-AGE exposure, including the effects of fru-AGEs on cell-surface receptor expression. We hypothesized that once microglia were activated in response to fru-AGE exposure, there would be an increase in the expression of RAGE and TLR4 to facilitate the proinflammatory cascade.
