Blocking of only one protein helps to prevent diabetes


Many diseases develop because of various genetic disorders. And, influencing our genes and the proteins coded by them, emergence of some diseases can be prevented. Not so long ago the group of experts from the Medical center of children's hospital has found a way to prevent development of diabetes of the second type and obesity in Cincinnati (USA), having blocked only 1 protein.

"Wonderful" protein carries the name Argonaute 2 (Ago2). And he suppresses synthesis of RNA in a liver, maintaining power balance, preventing development of a fatty gepatoz of a liver, diabetes of the second type and obesity. As researchers report, protein of Ago2 slows down metabolism and improves ability of a liver to process food with the high content of fat.

the Research of protein is at the most initial stage, but the first experiments on laboratory mice have already proved the efficiency. During experiences of animals have divided into 2 groups: the first didn't receive any therapy, and at the second was Ago2 protein synthesis in a liver is blocked. Both groups received the identical food with the high content of fat containing products which at long reception can become the reason of development of diabetes 2 types. As a result at part of animals of 1 group obesity and diabetes while results of analyses experimental of 2 groups have indicated stable indicators of fatty exchange and symptoms of obesity with diabetes at mice has begun to develop it wasn't observed. As one of authors of work, doctor Takakhisa Nakamura has said, "Opening of participation of Ago2 in exchange processes is extremely important and it unites already available data on synthesis of various connections in a liver and about power exchange. We consider that our data will become a basis for a new type of therapy of the patients inclined to obesity and development of diabetes 2 types."
