Default How Mammals Fuel Milk Production May Have Implications For Cancer



[Only registered users see links. ]

In a new study in the December issue of the journal Cell Metabolism, published by Cell Press, the researchers found that one of three "isoforms" of the gene known as Akt is specifically required for lactating mice to synthesize sufficient quantities of milk to support their offspring. While the loss of so-called Akt1 does not lead to structural abnormalities, they found, mothers deficient for the gene exhibit a disruption of the coordinated metabolic changes that normally occur at the onset of lactation.
