A genetic variant tightly linked to obesity causes fat-precursor cells to become energy-storing white fat instead of energy-burning beige fat, researchers report online August 19 in the New England Journal of Medicine.
In the fat cells of people who have the obesity-risk variant, ARID5B can't do its job, and the IKK genes crank up production of energy-storing white fat.
Energy-cost tests have demonstrated that the amount of energy required for use of a prosthesis incorporating a Seattle Systems' energy-storing Littig Hip System is considerably lessened because more of the energy generated in movement is recycled, helping lower patients' basic metabolic rate and actually reducing oxygen consumption rates.
Boyer and Walker study the enzyme ATP synthase, which manufactures ATP, the energy-storing molecule that fuels numerous biochemical reactions in the cell.
In one project, the researchers use the cellular enzyme glycogen phosphorylase -- which normally liberates glucose units from huge, energy-storing starch molecules called glycogen when the cell needs more fuel--to run the reaction in reverse using a laboratory-made glucose derivative.
In the new system, the cell machinery and messenger RNA (mRNA) copies of the desired gene are held in a reaction chamber while a fresh solution containing the energy-storing molecules ATP and GTP continuously flows through the chamber.
