Scientists in Memphis, Tenn., studied obesity in mice, finding that estrogen receptor β and its ligands had a strong anti-obesity effect, reducing weight gain and adiposity in mice without any changes to activity levels or food intake. This could indicate a new opportunity for safe anti-obesity therapeutics in humans. For this project, Pippin Prep was used for library sizing prior to sequencing on an Ion Torrent Proton.
