New Findings on Fat Cell Metabolism Could Lead to New Approaches for Treating Diabetes and Obesity

November 17, 2015

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego report new insights into what nutrients fat cells metabolize to make fatty acids. The findings pave the way for understanding potential irregularities in fat cell metabolism that occur in patients with diabetes and obesity and could lead to new treatments for these conditions. The researchers published their findings online in the Nov. 16 issue of Nature Chemical Biology…. Read the full story from the UC San Diego Newsroom
