Biosynthesis of Very Long Chain Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids in Chicory
Poster Sep 25, 2008
Very long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (VLCPUFAs) are declining in reserves, since they are produced by oily fish. VLCPUFAs are important in human nutrition because they are responsible for the production of inflammatory mediators such as prostaglandins, the regulation of cholesterol synthesis and its transport, and the maintenance of cellular membranes. This research aims to produce VLCPUFAs in edible plants.
Psychiatric Risk Gene Cacna1c and Early Life Stress: Potential Gene-Environment interactions?Poster
Early life stress (ELS) is highly associated with development of psychopathology
and mood disorders in adulthood. Genetic studies have identified variation in the gene calcium voltage-gated channel subunit alpha1C (CACNA1C) to increase risk for several psychiatric disorders. This poster assessed the expression of Cacna1c following prepubertal stress.
Screening of ALDH2 Interactome by Combined Immunoprecipitation and Mass SpectrometryPoster
ALDH2 may have an unidentified protein interaction network, which would help elucidate its importance in various cellular functions. The combination of immunoprecipitation and mass spectrometry will give us insights that could not be easily attained otherwise.READ MORE
