A study from the Department of Cancer Biology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute;  Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, USA shows that Cyclin D1–Cdk4 controls glucose metabolism independently of cell cycle progression.”

This study was published in the June 26, 2014 Nature [I.F >35] by Prof. Puigserver and others from the Department of Cancer Biology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute;  Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, USA.

On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports here that: Menatetrenone, a vitamin K2 analogue, promotes gluconeogenesis and hyperglycemia via down regulation of Cyclin D1.  This study suggests that Menatetrenone, by down regulating its target gene, it may promote  gluconeogenesis and hyperglycemia.
