Found hormone replacement exercise – the news of Transnistria
According to news Agency ” Lenta PMR” with reference to Rusian media reports, scientists have deduced a natural hormone in muscle cells, which provides some key health benefits of physical exertion. They say that this protein is a very promising candidate for the development of new treatment of diabetes, obesity and posibly other diseases, such as cancer.
“it was Interesting to find a natural substance connected to exercise that had the therapeutic potential”, ” say the authors. They named the hormone ericina in honor of the goddes iris. This first is a biological mechanism that explains the benefits of physical activity.
Hormone irisin has a powerful influence on fat that store exces calories. When irisin increases with exercise is introduced artificially, turn on genes that convert white fat into good brown fat. Brown fat burns calories more than exercise alone.
Irisin also improves glucose tolerance, is a key indicator of metabolic health of mice that were fed a high-fat diet.
The opening, however, does not replace the gym, because the hormone does not make muscles stronger. Its levels increase during extended approaches to the exercises.
Scientists have determined that a hormone of metabolic regulator PGC1-alpha. It turned out that irisin is located on the surface membrane of muscle cells, but not in the nucleus, as expected. The investigators injected the hormone to mice, leading a sedentary lifestyle who were obese and were prone to diabetes.
Already on day 10 mice had better control of sugar and insulin in the blood, thus preventing the onset of diabetes and reduced weight. This protein did not cause side effects and rat its form is identical to the one that is in the human body.
Perhaps within two years, scientists will move to clinical trials.
