A musical way to stay free of diabetes: Music-based therapy for body weight control, energy homeostasis, and TIIDM: Music inhibits DNA methyltransferase 3a (Dnmt3a) expression, increases FGF21 expression, augments insulin sensitivity, increases glucose tolerance, and protects from diet-induced obesity and TIIDM, via up-regulation of its target gene, 22/September/2018, 10.25 pm

Introduction: What they say  A study from Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology Department, University of California, Berkeley, Berkeley, United States shows that “Dnmt3a is an epigenetic mediator […]
