Antibacterial Drug Alters MicroRNA Production to Boost Thermogenesis, Reduce Weight Gain in Mice

Publicado em 04 dezembro 2020
Research by scientists at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in Brazil has demonstrated how treatment using an antibacterial drug can boost metabolism and attenuate weight gain induced by a fatty diet in experimental mice. The studies, headed by Marcelo Mori, PhD, a professor at the university’s Biology Institute (IB-UNICAMP), showed that treatment with the broad-spectrum fluoroquinolone antibiotic enoxacin, triggered the animals’ white adipose tissue (WAT)—which normally [...]
