CRISPR可将常规脂肪转化为可提供能量的脂肪

CRISPR turns normal body fat into a type that burns energy

哈佛干细胞研究所的科学家开发了一种基于细胞的治疗肥胖的新疗法。肥胖是导致II型糖尿病和相关慢性疾病的主要原因。该疗法移植了类棕色脂肪细胞,该细胞是一种经过基因改造的人白色脂肪细胞,能像棕色脂肪细胞一样将脂肪转化为热量。

Harvard Stem Cell Institute scientists have developed a proof of concept for a novel cell-based therapy against obesity, the main cause of type 2 diabetes and related chronic illnesses. The potential therapy involves transplanting human brown-like fat cells, which are human white fat cells that have been genetically modified to become similar to heat-generating brown fat cells.
