    How A Single Genetic Change in Gut Bacteria Can Affect our Metabolism

    Gut flora or gut bacteria is the community of organism which lives in our digestive system. These microbes have incredible potential to affect our physiology, both in health and in diseases like the development of obesity and metabolic diseases such as diabetes. A new study showed changes in metabolism and reduction in weight gain in mice on deleting a single…

    Researchers Unfolded the Structure of Enzyme ATP Synthase

    The new study led by the team of researchers of Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science has resolved the structure of enzyme which makes ATP i.e. mitochondrial ATP synthase structure. This research lifted the barrier to understanding their function in disease and drug mechanisms. ATP synthase is an enzyme that produces the energy storage molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP). As…
