(Best Syndication News) - Researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found that blocking an enzyme called fatty acid synthase (FAS) in mice aided them against gaining weight even when eating a high-fat diet. The mice that were not having the FAS blocked were given the same high-fat diet and became obese. The research may help develop new treatments for obesity and type 2 diabetes in humans. The study results were published in the online edition of the journal Cell Metabolism.

The blocked FAS enzyme made the mice become more sensitive to insulin. The researchers engineered the mice so that they would not make FAS in their fat cells.
