Study maps a molecular link between insulin-sensitivity and obesity.
Obesity is a global health problem that poses a major risk factor for life-threatening diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and neurodegeneration. Recent studies have identified specific loci associated with obesity in humans, paving the way for potential therapeutic strategies to combat metabolic disorders. One such example is SORL1, the gene encoding sorting-related receptor with type A repeats (SORLA). The link between certain hereditary forms … Continue reading Study maps a molecular link between insulin-sensitivity and obesity.
