A research group from Harvard medical school conducted a study, which found a protein that activates metabolic processes in the human body. PGC-1a acts as a lever, including the breakdown of fat for the energy generation and heat.
The connection itself was discovered in muscle tissue. His concentration was significantly increased during exercise. It takes the information in the nervous system for additional activation of metabolic processes and synthesis aminoisobutyric acid. This acid is additionally activates the process of fat burning.
At the time of contact of the acid with one molecule of fat is accelerated her cleavage. It should be noted that metabolic processes are activated not only in fat tanks, but also in the liver. In the future it is planned to develop the next generation of drugs based on the received information.
