Ferrari Press Agency Ref 9015 Fats1 19/03/2018 See Ferrari text Picture must credit : Salk Institute A new way of tackling obesity could be on the way after scientists identified a protein that makes the difference between two types of fat in the human body.White fat stores energy and it is this that can lead to people becoming overweight.But ??shealthier??? brown fat burns easily and is designed to keep the body.People with a low body mass index, the calculation used for working out if a person is overweight, have more of this brown fat.Reasearchers at the independent Salk Institute for Biological Studies in California have identified the protein that allows brown fat to expend energy.The group focused on estrogen-related receptor gamma , known as ERR?l, a gene that is active at high levels in brown fat cells.They say this is opening up a new potential avenue for treating obesity and its related diseases.While most fat cells in the human body store energy, everyone has a small subset of brown fat cells that do the opposite??"burn energy and generate heat. Now, Salk researchers have discovered how the molecule ERR?l gives this brown fat its energy-expending identity, making those cells ready to warm a person up when they step into the cold, and potentially offering a new therapeutic target for diseases related to obesity. Until about a decade ago, scientists thought that only babies??"who can???t yet shiver to warm up??"had brown fat in their bodies. Studies have since shown that adults also have brown fat, albeit at much lower levels, and people with lower body mass indexes tend to have more of it. At a cellular level, brown fat cells are crammed full of energy-generating mitochondria, which give the cells their brown colour.The team found that brown fat cells express the ERR?l gene all the time ,not just in response to cold, and that white fat cells do not express the gene at all.
