Recently, a research team headed by Professor Lin Shengcai and Associate Professor Lin Shuyong of the School of Life Sciences of Xiamen University published a paper in the magazine Cell Metabolism online entitled “AIDA Selectively Mediates Downregulation of Fat Synthesis Enzymes by ERAD to Retard Intestinal Fat Absorption and Prevent Obesity”. The research revealed that inhibition of endoplasmic-reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) increases the abundance of triacylglycerol synthesis enzymes and fat absorption in small intestine and the AIDA-mediated endoplasmic-reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) system may represent an inner “anti-thrifty” mechanism impinging on intestinal fat absorption.
