Obese mice lost weight after treatment with BP3 protein
A natural protein helps obese mice lose 1/3rd of their fat - short science articles and news

While fat mice look cute, some obese mice have a genetic predisposition to obesity as well as the metabolic complications associated with them such as the diabetes and fatty liver. Now, researchers have found that the protein BP3 which is a natural protein and not an artificial drug enhances the activities of other proteins involved in metabolism of carbohydrates and sugars. This led to the discovery that treatment of BP3 over 18 days could reduce the obesity in mice for 33%. Also, it decreased the excess blood sugar which is usually linked to diabetes and eliminated fats from their fatty liver. Surprisingly, there were no microscopic and clinical side effects of the protein which could help develop human treatments.
