Molecular therapy for body weight control, energy homeostasis and TIIDM: TICAM1/TRIF[Toll-like receptor adaptor molecule1/TIR-domain-containing adapter-inducing interferon-beta] decreases CADM1 and its downstream target genes that inhibit glucose-induced insulin secretion, improves insulin sensitivity, increases energy utilization, promotes weight loss and protects from diet-induced obesity and TIIDM, via up regulation of its target gene, 24/February/2020, 11.12 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine, Berlin, Germany shows that “Regulation of body weight and energy homeostasis by […]
