Cellular mechanism will help to escape from obesity - scientists

Most cells have special processes, primary cilia. Scientists have found that these formations can prevent the formation of fat cells from stem tissue. Data were installed in several experiments. Another manipulation with a new cellular mechanism can protect against cancer and inflammatory diseases, says Zee News.

The length of the cilia can be changed with the help of certain pharmaceutical preparations, artificial inflammation or mechanical effects on tissues. Recent research in this area prove: many diseases are caused by pathology of these cilia.

One of the mechanisms of the formation of fat in the body - the evolution of stem cells in fat (adipokines). If you restrict the increase of cilia in stem cells, it is possible to slow down and neutralize this process. Now this is only possible in the laboratory and at the gene level.
