Converting cells to burn fat, not store it

from ScienceDaily

Researchers have uncovered a new molecular pathway for stimulating the body to burn fat – a discovery that could help fight obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. In a study published in the journal Genes & Development, a team led by researchers from the Department of Biochemistry at McGill University focus on a protein known as folliculin and its role in regulating the activity of fat cells. By knocking out the gene that produces folliculin in fat cells in mice, the researchers triggered a series of biomolecular signals that switched the cells from storing fat to burning it. more
