EPISODE 129 - DNA FOCUS - ADRB3
Manage episode 190029014 series 1184045
This week we are investigating ADRB3, a gene which appears in our fat sensitivity panel. This gene encodes for beta-3-adrenergic receptors, which are located mainly is fat tissue. They play a role in breaking down fat for use as energy, and a small change in this gene, known as a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), is thought to determine how well we can tolerate saturated fats.
The C allele is associated with reduced fat cell breakdown, and is also associated with a higher BMI and increased energy intake, especially for fats. C allele carriers may also find it a bit harder to lose fat.
Associated with the normal sensitivity to fat, and the normal amount of fat loss in a diet.
