April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A research team from the University of Colorado School of Medicine and The Obesity and Metabolism Laboratory at Tufts University has discovered that deleting a specific gene in mice prevents them from becoming obese, even if they are fed a high fat diet. The team believes this finding has the potential to be replicated in humans. "When fed a diet that induces obesity these mice don't get fat," said James McManaman, Ph.D.,...

Eating more n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, commonly known as omega-3 fatty acids, may help carriers of a genetic variant on the perilipin 4 (PLIN4) gene locus lose weight more efficiently. Based on this observation, researchers at the Jean Mayer Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (USDA HNRCA) at Tufts University identified a microRNA (miRNA) which may elucidate the underlying biological mechanism. Led by Jose M. Ordovas, PhD, director of the Nutrition and Genomics Laboratory at the...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Deleting the receptor, not the protein ghrelin itself, turns up the body's fat-burning thermostat, giving aging mice an exothermic boost toward a svelte physique, researchers recently reported. The protein's receptor, growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHS-R), might make a better target than ghrelin for treating obesity, according to Sun said that experimentally deleting the receptor from the body cells of laboratory mice prevented obesity by diminishing white adipose...

U.S. scientists have determined that a specific gene plays a role in the weight-gain response to a high-fat diet in animals. Senior author Kamal Mehta of Ohio State University's College of Medicine said the finding suggests blocking this gene could one day be a therapeutic strategy to reduce diet-related obesity and associated disorders, such as diabetes and liver damage, in humans. The study, published online in the journal Hepatology, found that a diet rich in fat induced production of this...

In a discovery that counters prevailing thought, a study in mice has found that inactivating a pair of key genes involved in "fat-burning" can actually increase energy expenditure and help lower diet-induced obesity. These unusual findings, appearing this week in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, might lead to some new roads in weight-loss therapy. Humans and other warm-blooded animals need to continually "burn fat" in order to maintain body temperature, and it's currently believed that an...

Interleukin Genetics, which develops preventive consumer products and genetic tests, and Geisinger Health System, an integrated health services organization, have announced a research collaboration to explore the role of genetics in obesity. The goal of the collaboration is to develop a series of genetic tests that will help physicians better understand an individual's inherited resistance to weight loss and, more specifically, gauge a patient's likelihood of success with diet and other...
