Scientists: Peptide speeds up metabolism

ROME, Oct. 16 (UPI) -- A group of Italian scientists has found a protein that increases the metabolism of mice, preventing them from gaining weight when fed a high-fat diet.

The team at the National Research Council says that the peptide TLQP-21 could become an anti-obesity drug for humans, the news agency Ansa reported. But they warned that increasing metabolism could stress the heart and that there's a long road from mice to humans.

Anna Moles and Alessandro Bartolomucci, leaders of the research effort, said at a news conference that the results were surprising.

"The effect was unexpected because the peptide was able to prevent the first stage of obesity caused by a fat-rich diet," Bartolomucci said. "The mice that were given TLQP-21 remained the same weight whereas another set of mice that received exactly the same food began to get fat."

The results were published in the U.S. journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Dj Tiesto - Battleship Grey (Feat Kirsty Hawkshaw)

It’s battleship grey outside
And we don’t know what we’ll be getting
All your sweet talking, raining over me
‘til my name escapes, and I'm set free

There’s a word in your eye,
But I don’t know what is to say it
And when you call me from the other side,
A sense of it starts breaking up, and its lies

I don’t know, what I’m getting,
But I’m getting something,
I don’t know, what I’m getting,
But I’m getting something

It’s battleship grey outside,
Confusion, all this is for the gods
Uncertainty, I could be bathing under artificial light
Under twilight blue, starts to mesmorize
And I tell myself that you light up my life
But its all in the mind when you cannot see in the eyes

‘cause I don’t know, what I’m getting
But I’m getting something,
I don’t know, what I’m getting
But I’m getting something

It’s battleship grey
All your sweet talking, raining over me
‘til my name escapes, and I’m set free
