The art of sheep-like, bovine flesh-eating bacteria, which is what makes it possible for animals to survive on a very low-carbohydrate diet in a controlled setting, is an incredibly fascinating subject for researchers interested in understanding the evolution of the diet in the face of starvation.
"What we need to study more fully and more often is how the gut adapts to a diet that is very restrictive in terms of caloric intake," explains Dr. Daniel Pizarro, a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Toronto, who studies how the gut regulates the metabolic processes that make us feel full in the first place.
"You've got to look at why the diet was chos007카지노en in the first place," Pizarro adds. "If it's to get leaner, to get your weight up, to get your energy levels up – it's very hard to stick with that diet and stay lean. It makes you sick."
Researchers are exploring this possibility using a very simple technique called gas chromatography and mass spectrometry, which uses liquid oxygen and nitrogen to measure different parts of the body, including the microbiome, which provides a snapshot of the environment in which the body evolved. Researchers can then compare how that 슬롯 머신system responded to a highly restrictive diet by looking at the results of the gas chromatography/mass spectrometry experiments, he says.
The bacteria studied here were discovered in 2013 when a University of Toronto microbiologist, Professor Richard Evershed, was working on the idea of studying the effects of a low-carbohydrate diet and decided to examine them.
Evershed knew there were potentially hundreds of animal strains around the world that have the ability to use their own fat for fuel, but couldn't immediately find the one necessary to grow the meat-eating bacteria. He and his res도박earch partner, Prof. Bruce Beaudin, a professor of microbiology and evolutionary biology, both realized that finding it could be really useful: There was no reliable reference reference that gave the exact numbers of fat-digesting bacteria needed to feed a particular diet and the details on the various strains that survive.
"They are very good at producing fat and storing that fat in the muscle tissue, and producing the enzymes and bacteria necessary to digest that fat," says Beaudin. "It's essentially like building a house by hand, with no building materials."
They decided to look for a fat-soluble compound called lipoprotein esterase (LSE), which is actually a gene involve
