Focus on  

Active transport during Drosophila oogenesis

A recent study in collaboration between the BIOMETRA Department (Fabio Giavazzi e Roberto Cerbino) and colleagues of the Cambridge Zoology Department (Maik Drechsler e Isabel Palacios), appeared in Nature Communications, gives information about the delicate interplay of actina nd microtubules in trasporting organelles inside the oocyte of the fruit fly, one of the most studied model organisms.

Selective adipose blockade of CB1 receptor increases energy expenditure and reduces body weight

WHO has declared obesity, particularly in childhood and adolescence, as the first public health problem worldwide. Treatment of obesity is often poorly effective and limited in time. This study demonstrates that selective blockade of endocannabinoid CB1 receptor in adipose tissue, which normally stores fat, transforms this tissue in thermogenically active brown fat and reduces body weight.
