Boc5 molecule can control obesity and diabetes

There is some good news for people suffering from obesity. Researchers at the University of California have discovered a small molecule which could play a pivotal role in controlling diabetes which is a slow killer disease and help in development of treatment for adult onset diabetes. Called as Boc5, this molecule leads to stimulation of insulin function in response to high glucose levels. It has also been found out to bring down the weight of a person by nearly twenty percent. This molecule leads to the production of intestinal hormone which metabolizes glucose. It is being labeled as the first small molecule activator for Class B GPCRs which leads to regulation of hormones in a number of human physiological processes. The discovery of Boc5 has opened up new avenues for supporting future research. It is expected that this molecule will help in controlling both diabetes and obesity which are some of the silent killer diseases.
