Surgery to mitigate complications of diabetes and obesity comes of age: Mechanistic insights into how Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery can save you from blood sugar disease (Diabetes Mellitus): Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), one of the bariatric surgical procedure performed for weight loss,  augments the expression of FGF19 and FGF1,  attenuates hepatic glucose production, decreases hepatic acetyl CoA content, brings down the levels of plasma ACTH, and corticosterone, augments insulin sensitivity, promotes weight loss and alleviates TIDM, via upregulation of its target gene, 15/July/2019, 7.41 am

Introduction: What they say  A study from Diabetes and Obesity Center of Excellence, Department of Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, USA shows that Central injection […]

Mechanistic insights into how yoga therapy aids in control of body weight, energy homeostasis and TIIDM:  Yoga therapy increases REV-ERB and its downstream target genes, inhibits lipid accumulation, improves dyslipidemia and insulin sensitivity, increases energy utilization, promotes weight loss and protects from diet-induced obesity and TIIDM, via up regulation of its target gene, 22/June/2019, 11.29 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from the Department of Molecular Therapeutics, The Scripps Research Institute, Jupiter, Florida 33458, USA shows that “Regulation of circadian behaviour […]

A long myth that how coconut oil lowers cholesterol and triglyceride and increases HDL levels is explained: Lauric acid-based therapy for Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD):Lauric acid (C12) or Dodecanoic acid, one of the main components of  coconut oil, promotes degradation of HMGCR, decreases the levels of triglycerides, free cholesterol, and total cholesterol and prevents the progression of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD via down-regulation of its target gene, 9/June/2018, 11.17 pm

The significance of the study: Given that: (1)  15-30% of Western populations suffer from Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), while 6-25% of Asian populations suffer from it; (2) 75 […]

Molecular therapy for body weight control, energy homeostasis and TIIDM: Aleglitazar, a PPARα and PPARγ agonist, 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, 7/June/2019, 11.30 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 […]
