Onderzoekers ontdekten dat inhibitie van het Sirt1 enzyme in de regio van de hypothalamus ervoor zorgt dat ratten minder honger hebben. Daardoor komen ze ook minder in gewicht bij. Deze bevindingen zouden mogelijks van belang kunnen zijn bij de aanpak van overgewicht bij mensen...

The Sirt1 enzyme in the body has generated enormous attention as a possible secret to living longer. Some scientists believe that fasting and drinking wine appear to aid in this quest because both likely activate Sirt1, unleashing its power.
But researchers from Brown University, Rhode Island Hospital and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center have discovered that Sirt1 in the brain has its own potential health benefit: It may keep people thinner. They determined that inhibiting the activity of Sirt1 in the brain's hypothalamic region appears to help control food intake -- a finding that potentially lays the groundwork for new treatments for obesity
...
Nillni's team did find that fasting helped increase Sirt1 production and activity in the brain, consistent with the view that reducing food intake stimulates Sirt1 elsewhere in the body. But they generated clear data showing that pharmacologically or genetically inhibiting Sirt1 activity in the brain led to the animals eating less food and gaining fewer pounds compared to their untreated counterparts...
