A team used both structural and spectroscopic techniques to study the dynamics of cell surface G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs).
Researchers have obtained the crystal structure of the lipin enzyme, the regulator of triglyceride production, which they say could inform research into heart disease, obesity and diabetes.
A label-free imaging technology has been developed by researchers, allowing them to investigate biomolecules such as metabolites, aiding in the study of drugs.
Studies in mice have shown that the G-1 compound reduces obesity and the effects of diabetes by burning extra calories, report researchers.
A study has revealed a brain circuit in mice that suppresses the need to eat without a feeling of nausea, presenting a new strategy for diet drugs.
A team of scientists in the United States has successfully used a drug, which blocks AHR receptors, to prevent and treat obesity in mice. Their findings have spurred further research into the receptors’ association with diet and the gut microbiome.
An unexpected finding about a protein that's highly expressed in fat tissue could lead to new approaches for addressing obesity and many other diseases.
Researchers have identified a specific receptor that is critical for the release of insulin and provides a target for diabetes and obesity.
A new study has shown a new mechanism of controlling fat production in the body which could lead to new therapies to treat obesity.
A study has used CRISPR-Cas9 to treat obesity and type 2 diabetes symptoms in mice, highlighting the potential use in humans.
Researchers in the states have discovered a particular gene mutation that slows down sugar metabolism in the gut, indicating future treatment options for individuals with cardiometabolic and sugar-associated diseases.
Scientists have discovered that the anti-inflammatory protein NLRP12 normally helps protect mice against obesity and insulin resistance when they are fed a high-fat diet...
Researchers are hopeful of finding a means to inhibit obesity and its associated health problems after a study in which they blocked an RNA-silencing protein in the livers of mice, preventing obesity and diabetic conditions.
Aortic atherosclerotic plaque inflammation may contribute to the progression of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease to liver fibrosis...
