Could FGFBP3 be the link to weight loss?

It’s a mouthful but Fibroblast Growth Factor Binding protein 3 (FBFBP3) could be a key to weight loss. The clever scientist at Georgetown university believe so in their recently published paper.

BP3 modulates fat and glucose metabolism and is a key link to enhancing the endocrine FGF which controls their metabolism. By controlling the level of BP3 the scientist were able to switch the mice in the experiment to burning fat and glucose instead of storing it.

They suggested that it could be a new method for controlling metabolic syndrome which is responsible for non alcoholic fatty liver disease and type 2 diabetes.
