High-sugar diet no problem for genetic mutants

6 octubre 2014

A genetic pathway for circumventing the weight gain that accompanies a high-sugar diet has been discovered by scientists. Building on previous work with C. elegans, researchers found that certain genetic mutants — those with a hyperactive SKN-1 gene — could be fed incredibly high-sugar diets without gaining any weight, while regular C. elegans ballooned on the same diet.
