A new study from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine has found that a cellular signaling pathway governs the whether cells turn into fat tissue or smooth muscle. Controlling this signaling pathway, and its capacity to govern cell differentiation, has important implications in preventing obesity. This important discovery could lead to better medical help for those fighting obesity, and in turn help those with type 2 diabetes. Of course, much more research is needed, but the more we learn about how our bodies work, the more we can learn about how to stay healthy.
