Scientists ID molecular 'switch' in liver that triggers harmful effects of saturated and trans fats

...o-activator that was isolated in 2002. Experiments including the measurement of gene activity by microarrays showed that saturated and trans fats caused greater activity of the gene that makes PGC-1beta co-activator than did unsaturated fats. The research also showed that when the fats triggered PGC-1beta, th...
