Penn Study on Fragile X Syndrome Uses Fruitfly's Point of View to Identify New Treatments

The hormone insulin - usually associated with diabetes -- is involved in the daily activity patterns and cognitive deficits in the fruitfly model of FXS. Results reveal a metabolic pathway that can be targeted by new and already approved drugs to treat fragile X patients.

Study characterizes insulin secretion in response to metabolic stress

The development of type 2 diabetes is linked to persistent inflammation as a consequence of metabolic stress. Prolonged exposure to the proinflammatory molecule IL-1? is associated with reduced insulin secretion by pancreatic ? cells, while short-term exposure to IL-1? has been shown to increase insulin levels.
