Gene linked to rare disease activates fat breakdown

...nt version of the gene, suffer from the widespread buildup of fat in tissues throughout their bodies. The group found that the gene "CGI-58" is a strong activator of one of three lipid-degrading enzymes, or lipases, that disassemble triacylglycerol. Triacylglycerol is perhaps more commonly known as triglyce...

Seals protect brain, conserve oxygen by turning off shivering response on icy dives

..., seals maintain aerobic metabolism, avoid lactate buildup that occurs in the face of insufficient oxygen and require little time to recover, Folkow explained. Seals often spend 80-90% of their time at sea underwater, he said. Seals in the wild occasionally dive for so long that they use nearly all their ...
