Replication of SARS-CoV-2 in adipose tissue determines organ and systemic lipid metabolism in hamsters and humans


Zickler et al. describe SARS-CoV-2 RNA in post-mortem samples of human adipose tissue. In the hamster model, SARS-CoV-2 propagation in adipose tissue leads to specific changes in lipid metabolism, which are reflected in lipidome patterns of hamster and human plasma.
