Scientists in University of Cincinnati produce fat busting proteins in the laboratory

Researchers have found ways to create in the research laboratory a human protein produced in the liver referred to as Apolipoprotein A5 (APOA 5) that plays a crucial role in metabolizing and clearing excess degrees of triglycerides from the blood vessels These researchers are Mark Castleberry, a doctoral student, and Professor Sean Davidson, both in the UC College of Medicine. The findings are available in the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology’s Journal of Lipid Research online.  Health issues mainly arise due to accumulation triglycerides a big factor that brings about obesity, diabetes , cardiovascular disease and other health issues. This fat has to be metabolised and circulated sooner in order to avoid it getting accumulated in the bloodstream.  This   APOA5 protein governs the circulation of triglycerides. The researchers observed higher proportion of APOA5 contributes to faster removal of the triglyceride. The detailed functionality of APOA5 conti
