Osteoporosis treatments may benefit from discovery of key driver of low bone density      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Scientists have pinpointed a key driver of low bone density, a discovery that may lead to improved treatments with fewer side effects for women with osteoporosis. The findings reveal that loss of an epigenetic modulator, KDM5C, preserves bone mass in mice. KDM5C works by altering epigenetic 'marks,' which are akin to 'on' and 'off' switches that ensure the instructions written in DNA are used at the right time and in the right place.

Dieting: Brain amplifies signal of hunger synapses      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Many people who have dieted are familiar with the yo-yo effect: after the diet, the kilos are quickly put back on. Researchers have now shown in mice that communication in the brain changes during a diet: The nerve cells that mediate the feeling of hunger receive stronger signals, so that the mice eat significantly more after the diet and gain weight more quickly. In the long term, these findings could help developing drugs to prevent this amplification and help to maintain a reduced body weight after dieting.
