The loss of fat metabolizing protein PPARalpha in the hippocampus can lead to dementia, a new study finds.
Researchers have identified how the circadian clock helps prime mitochondria to correctly use stored energy when we are not eating.
Prader-Willi syndrome, a genetic disorder characterized by an insatiable appetite, is associated with the loss of non-coding RNAs; resulting in dysregulation of the circadian and metabolic genes.
A new study reveals how the production of p75NTR protein oscillates in time with the body's natural circadian rhythm and how these oscillations help regulate vital metabolic functions. The findings offer an insight into how circadian rhythm helps maintain the body's overall metabolic health.
