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 regulates glucose metabolism.” This study was published in the 30 September 2011 issue of the Journal “Cell” [I.F: 33.116] by Prof Daley GQ, Zhu H, and others.
On the foundation of this interesting finding, Dr L Boominathan PhD, Director-cum-chief Scientist of GBMD, reports that: Natural product-based Regenerative therapy for DM: Withaferin A promotes an insulin-sensitized state via up regulation of reprogramming protein Lin28
Significance: Prof. Daley GQ and his team members had shown earlier that loss of Lin28 promotes insulin resistance and glucose intolerance. The study presented here suggests, for the first time, that Withaferin A, by increasing the expression of its target gene, it may increase the expression of RNA-binding protein Lin-28, and thereby promote insulin sensitivity. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing ” Withaferin A or its analogues” may be used to treat DM.
