Washington: Something more than overeating and a lack of exercise causes the body to store more fat and burn less energy – a protein called p62, researchers have claimed.These findings indicate that p62 might make a promising target for new therapies aimed at curbing obesity.“Without p62 you’re making lots of fat but not burning energy, and the body thinks it needs to store energy,” Jorge Moscat, lead author of the study, said.“It’s a double whammy,” he said.Moscat, who led the study with collaborators at Helmholtz Zentrum Munchen in Germany and the University of Cincinnati, had previously produced mice that completely lack the p62 protein everywhere in their bodies. As a result, the animals were obese.
