Abstract

Recent obesity research has reported differences in intestinal microbiota between obese ob/ob mice and lean wild type mice suggesting a potential link between bacterial populations and metabolic health. Sterculic oil (SO) is a natural inhibitor of stearoyl-CoA desaturase-1, a potential therapeutic target for the treatment/attenuation of obesity and insulin resistance.
