Hibernating bears' ability to regulate insulin is reduced to eight proteins - WSU Insider

Hibernating bears’ ability to regulate insulin is reduced to eight proteins – WSU Insider

PULLMAN, Wash. – Feeding hibernating bears honey has helped Washington State University researchers find potential genetic keys to bears’ insulin control, a breakthrough that could eventually lead to a treatment for the human diabetes. Each year, bears gain tremendous weight and then barely move for months, a behavior that would mean diabetes in humans, but …
