  • The effect of CLAs on the expression of PKC isoforms and cell viability in breast cancer cell lines. 

    Crabb-Wyke, Rosemary H. (The Robert Gordon University School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences, 2008-11)
    Breast tumours make up 15% of the total cancer burden in the UK and around 8% of the total number of cancer related deaths. Protein kinase C (PKC) isoforms have been shown to be strongly modulated in many androgen sensitive ...
  • Evaluation of the quality of individual quick frozen fish products. 

    Seremeti, Maria Makri (Robert Gordon University School of Life Sciences., 2007-07)
    In the present study the effects of characteristic freezing times and storage time at -22°C on the quality of the adductor muscle of post-rigor scallops (Pecten maximus)and gilthead seabream fillets (Sparusa urata) were ...
  • Leptin inhibits proliferation of breast cancer cells at supraphysiological concentrations by inhibiting mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling. 

    Weichhaus, Michael; Broom, John; Wahle, Klaus; Bermano, Giovanna (Spandidos Publications. http://dx.doi.org/10.3892/ol.2014.2085, 2014-07)
    WEICHHAUS, M., BROOM, J., WAHLE, K. and BERMANO, G., 2014. Leptin inhibits proliferation of breast cancer cells at supraphysiological concentrations by inhibiting mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling. Oncology Letters, 8 (1), pp. 374-378.
    Leptin is a hormone secreted by white fat tissue and signals the amount of overall body fat to the hypothalamus. The circulating concentration of leptin correlates with the level of obesity. Breast cancer risk is higher ...

    Obesity is a multi-factorial metabolic disease, resulting in increased adipose tissue acquisition by the host. This disease increases the risk for developing co-morbidities, including Metabolic Syndrome and other disorders ...
