A recent study from the Mammalian Genetics Laboratory, Cancer Research UK London Research Institute, Lincoln’s Inn Fields Laboratories, London, United Kingdom; and School of Medicine, King’s College London, London, United Kingdom shows that “Loss of Fbw7 Reprograms Adult Pancreatic Ductal Cells into α, δ, and β Cells. This study was published in the August 7  2014 Cell Stem Cell (the number 1 journal in “Stem cell biology” with an impact factor of 23.563) by Prof Axel Behrens, Rocio Sancho, and others.

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Chocolate your way to lead a diabetic-free life: Theobromine, a compound derived from theobroma and commonly found in chocolates, promotes  reprogramming of adult pancreatic ductal cells into α, δ, and β cells via up regulation of Ngn3. This study suggests that Theobromine, by increasing the expression of Ngn3 in adult pancreatic ductal cells, it may reprogram adult pancreatic ductal cells into β cells. Thereby, it may induce the expression of Ngn3, increase insulin secretion and inhibit insulin resistance. Together, this study suggests that pharmacological formulations encompassing “Theobromine or its analogues” may be used to regenerate  β cells in T2D patients.
