Farewell to Obesity: A study to determine the hormone of obesity

The journal Nature Medicine published a scientific paper confirming the association of the hormone Esperozine with the sense of hunger and the amount of food consumed by humans.

Esperozine is a protein hormone produced by the white lipid tissue of mammals and is responsible for the amount of glucose in the blood. The neutralization of his work helps to reduce hunger and reduce the amount of food consumed by humans. Baylor Medical College scientists in the United States have found, after clinical studies, that some patients with low appetite have mutations in FBN1 genes (FBN1) A protein called fibrelin), so they lack a small fraction of the protein in the body of the healthy person responsible for secretion of sparrow.

The study also showed that the function of the hormone Esperozine, the interaction with neurons in the area of ​​"hypothalamus" in the brain (of its functions control the control of hormone secretion and control of hunger and thirst), and affects the hormone on two types of neurons, the first, "AgRP" stimulates appetite, "POMC" inhibits appetite, so this hormone increases the sense of hunger.

After scientists found that the proportion of the hormone Esperozine is very high in the blood of people who are overweight, they developed a new drug that completely limits the work of this hormone, but the drug is now in the first clinical trials.
