Docosahexaenoic acid (22:6n3, DHA) is an n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) that is known to induce context-dependent cell survival, as well as apoptosis, but the exact cellular and molecular mechanism(s) remain unknown. DHA is known to act as a natural ligand for the peroxisome...
Maternal Essential Fatty Acid Status During Pregnancy and Postpartum in the Alberta Pregnancy Outcomes and Nutrition (APrON) Study and Infant OutcomesDownload
Docosahexaenoic (DHA) and arachidonic (AA) acids are essential fatty acids found in breast milk and are important for the infant’s brain development and cognitive functions such as those that regulate sleep and crying. The overall goal of this research was to use a large maternal infant cohort,...
Malignant gliomas (MG) are the most common and aggressive brain cancers. FABP7 is an intracellular lipid trafficking molecule whose expression correlates with reduced MG patient survival. FABP7 has been shown to increase the migratory behaviour of MG cells. Moreover, the migratory behaviour of...
