Increasing Protein in Brown Adipose Tissue May Lead to New T2D Treatments

UT Southwestern (UTSW) Medical Center scientists discovered that boosting a protein in brown adipose tissue lowers blood sugar, promotes insulin sensitivity, and protects against fatty liver disease by remodeling white fat to a healthier state. Their mouse study may one day eventually lead to new therapeutic treatments and options for type 2 diabetes and other metabolic-related conditions.
