A gene driving the development of pernicious adipose tissue in humans has been identified by researchers for the first time. The findings imply that the gene may constitute a risk factor promoting the development of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. “Our findings represent an important step forward in the understanding of how adipose tissue links to the development of metabolic disease,” comments one of the principal investigators. … Read the Rest
