Experts of the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (IMBA) have found out as influence on synthesis of a certain gene can lead to the accelerated burning of fat.
According to the results of research published in the scientific magazine Cell (USA), for leanness of the person the mutation of ALK-gene which, according to scientists, was widely studied «in a cancer context» can answer. Experts consider that suppression of synthesis of this gene can lead to the accelerated burning of fat.
The majority of scientists studies adiposity and adiposity genetics. We have simply changed tactics and have studied leanness, having opened new area for researches, – one of authors of research Josef Penninger said.
The supposition of scientists was confirmed with tests for animals and insects in which course their ALK-genes were disconnected in the area of hypothalamus that led to fat burning.
