Natural product-based therapy for body weight control, energy homeostasis and TIIDM: Nateglinide, an anti-hyperglycemic drug,  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, 29/December/2017, 11.12 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 […]

Lifespan extension therapy: Lycopene, the commonly found Carotene in Gac, Guava, and Tomatoes, among others, prolongs mammalian life span via down regulation of angiotensin II type I receptor (AT1R), 26/December/2017, 7.44 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 […]
