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: MiRNA-based therapy for DM: miRNA-7 inhibits gluconeogenesis and hyperglycemia via up regulation of Cyclin D1 This study suggests that miRNA-7, by down regulating its target gene, it may inhibit gluconeogenesis and hyperglycemia. Together, this study suggests that pharmacological formulations encompassing “miRNA-7 or its activators   may be used in the treatment of DM.
