A protein that is able to control body fat and blood sugar levels

Writing in the new issue of the medical journal Endocrinology, the Canadian researchers said they tested a protein called nesatin 1\, which causes the body to consume fat and to lower blood sugar.

The protein was first identified by Japanese researchers in 2006, and initially linked to fat consumption. Based on previous studies, researchers at the university of york's neuroendocrinology laboratory conducted experiments on rats to analyze the role of the protein in metabolism and endocrine function.

They found that the "nesatin 1\" protein increases the rate of fat conversion in the body, which in turn controls the amount of fatin the body and reduces body weight, said suraj unyapan, an assistant professor of biology at the university who was involved in the study.

In addition, the researchers also found that the protein stimulates insulin production. Properly used, this protein may control blood sugar and reduce people's risk of diabetes. Researchers say the findings could provide a new way to treat obesity and diabetes.
