When people are deprived of food, a number of biological mechanisms are set in motion to adapt the body’s metabolism to the conditions of scarcity. One of these processes has been revealed by a team of researchers that has discovered how three important proteins collaborate on a genetic level to provide a response to long-term fasting….
