Neurotensin-based therapy for body weight control, energy homeostasis and TIIDM: Neurotensin, a 13-amino acid neuropeptide known to play a role in thermoregulation and neuroprotection, 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, 17/April/2017, 2.09 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 […]

A sweet way to say no to blood sugar disease: Sugar-based therapy for TIIDM: D-Mannose, a C-2 epimer of glucose,  increases the expression of IGF1R, INSR, and IRS2, and promotes an insulin-sensitized state, via up-regulation of  its target gene Lin28, 14/April/2018, 11.28 pm

Introduction: What they say:   A study from the Stem Cell Transplantation Program, Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, Boston Children’s Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, Massachusetts, USA shows that “The Lin28/let-7 axis […]

Bonding your way to decrease blood pressure/sugar and extend lifespan: Oxytocin-based Lifespan and healthspan extension therapy: Oxytocin,  a peptide hormone and neuropeptide known to play a role in empathy, generosity, child birth and so on, decreases blood sugar and blood pressure levels and prolongs mammalian life span, via down regulation of angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R), 13/April/2018, 7.09 am

Significance of the study: It has been shown earlier that antagonizing angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R) expression may prolong mammalian life span. Further, it has been shown […]
