...and that advantage increases with latitude." "This could
change the way we look for disease genes," she added. "Historically, we have searched for mutations, altered or damaged versions of genes that cause rare disorders, like cystic fibrosis or phenylketonuria. Now, we are starting to look for common ge...

Gut microbes can open gates in fat cells
...n, this research suggests that derivatives of Fiaf could
potentially become therapeutic agents. "We uncovered the importance of Fiaf by studying mice raised without ever being exposed to microorganisms. These so-called germ-free mice eat 30 percent more than normal mice yet have 50 percent less body fat,"...
Bristol scientists find key to unlock body's own cancer defence
...F works, and its effects on tumours, means that it could
be possible to prevent tumour growth by starving the tumour using the body's own anti-cancer agent, VEGF165b. The advantage of using VEGF165b over established compounds to treat cancer is that VEGF165b is a natural protein produced by the body under...
