It is becoming increasingly clear that cellular metabolism plays a critical role in the propagation of appropriate, effective, and pathologic immune responses. In this chapter, we detail the metabolic pathways involved in T cell activation and differentiation, highlighting specific factors responsible for directing the processes that lead to metabolic programming at important stages in the dynamic life cycle of this immune cell lineage. Additionally, this chapter will discuss how key metabolites are acquired, touching on the factors and conditions regulating the expression of crucial transporter molecules in response to activation and pathological states.
