Plant protein mimics hormone that mitigates diabetes and obesity

which compounds activate this receptor," he said. "Another approach would be to take the gene for the animal receptor, insert it into yeast, and start asking those same questions - what other compounds does the receptor recognize?" In their study, th...
By age 6, children of overweight mothers are also prone to obesity
...verweight mothers. "It is not necessary to wait to see
increased body fat by age six if the child is already overweight," Dr. Berkowitz said. "There appears to be an interaction between the genes that control body weight and environmental factors such as increased intake of sweets and fats, as well as in...
Yellowstone microbes fueled by hydrogen, according to U. of Colorado study
