“ Actually I eat a lot but I can’t gain weight” you must have heard. Today, this phrase we usually hear from our friends to the genetic dimension We are here with a descending research. Pretty comprehensive
This research, which we can easily say that it is to obesity focuses on how effective it is.
During this research protecting against obesity
(mtag101705) and very rare a gene has been discovered. Since this gene makes it very difficult to gain weight, it makes it very difficult for people to reach the obesity limit. Also, the gene we’re talking about is so rare. 1 in 3 thousand appears. Here are the details:
640. DNA sequences of more than 000 participants analyzed
Exercise and a suitable diet program Although we all know that it is effective against obesity, the emergence of this disease genes we need to know that it is also effective. An individual by genes eat very little as there is a possibility of getting obesity immediately eating too much it becomes possible to stay away from the disease. Research focuses on exactly these different genes.
In the research 640. more than 000 person’s genome sequences were examined. Later, the researchers determined that these individuals were high or low. to body mass index (BMI) reviewed the mutations in the genes that cause her to have it. It has been concluded that it affects the body mass index. 16 genes five of them, With G protein coupled receptors (GPCR) appeared to interact. This is the part of our brain that deals with hunger and metabolism. hypothalamus indicates that these genes, which are also seen in the region, affect weight.
A variant of one of these 5 genes GPR75 in the body mass index to the greatest impact turned out to have it. In the observations made, this gene a deactivated copy in body mass index compared to people with the gene working 5.3 kg lighter and obesity probabilities halfway up turned out to be down.
To verify, the researchers, who also observed mice with the inactive copy of this gene, came to the same conclusions. As we said, the inactive version of the GPR75 is so rare. 1 in 3 thousand appears. It is said that this research will also be valid in other diseases related to metabolism.
