Researchers discover master metabolism regulator with profound effect on fat metabolism

... Guo and Cavener examined metabolic processes in a special strain of mice that lacks the GCN2 kinase and compared them with those of normal mice. "Organisms are remarkably sensitive to dietary intake," Cavener says. "Being deprived of even one essential amino acid is enough for the GCN2 kinase to switch th...

Scientists see DNA get 'sunburned' for the first time

...ty chemists and their colleagues in Germany used a special technique to watch strands of DNA in the laboratory sustain damage in real time. They observed the most common chemical reaction among a family of reactions on the DNA molecule that are linked to sunburn, and discovered that this key reaction happ...

Weight-loss supplement shows good and bad traits

...the rat study, Belury and her colleagues studied a special kind of rat model bred to gain weight quickly. These rats were also less susceptible to CLA-induced weight loss. All rats ate a high-fat diet for four weeks. For the remaining four weeks of the study, half of the rats ate a low-fat diet supplemented ...
