Lack of enzyme turns fat cells into fat burners

...olecularbiology. "We found that the adipose in the mutant mice are nowoxidizing fat, hydrolyzing (breaking down using water) fat, and passingit on to the heart and muscle because there is an increase in oxidationof fat in those organs. It also starts oxidizing glucose. In otherwords, the adipose tissue is b...

Critical role in programmed cell death identified

... place. This feature makes it possible to identify mutant worms, in which cells that should have died instead live. Worms whose cell death program is blocked survive, at least in the lab, with their 131 extra cells. Such studies are impractical in mammals because cell death is essential and animals with a c...
