Lipid and Fatty Acid Compositions of Mytilus galloprovincialis Cultured in the Mar Grande of Taranto (Southern Italy): Feeding Strategies and Trophic Relationships
Lipid and fatty acid (FA) compositions were determined in the mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis collected from June 2006 to May 2007 in the Mar Grande of Taranto, southern Italy. Total lipidsExpand

Resveratrol inhibits the epidermal growth factor-induced epithelial mesenchymal transition in MCF-7 cells.
Carcinoma progression is associated with the loss of epithelial features, and the acquisition of a mesenchymal phenotype by tumour cells. Herein we show that exposure of MCF-7 cells to epidermalExpand

Molecular and functional characterisation of the zebrafish (Danio rerio) PEPT1‐type peptide transporter 1
We report the molecular and functional characterisation of a novel peptide transporter from zebrafish, orthologue to mammalian and avian PEPT1. Zebrafish PEPT1 is a low‐affinity/high‐capacity system.Expand

Oleic acid inhibits endothelial activation : A direct vascular antiatherogenic mechanism of a nutritional component in the mediterranean diet.
Because oleic acid is implicated in the antiatherogenic effects attributed to the Mediterranean diet, we investigated whether this fatty acid can modulate endothelial activation, ie, the concertedExpand

Targeting of GSK3β promotes imatinib-mediated apoptosis in quiescent CD34+ chronic myeloid leukemia progenitors, preserving normal stem cells.
The targeting of BCR-ABL, a hybrid oncogenic tyrosine (Y) kinase, does not eradicate chronic myeloid leukemia (CML)-initiating cells. Activation of β-catenin was linked to CML leukemogenesis and drugExpand

The prion protein: structural features and related toxic peptides
Prion diseases are characterized by the conversion of the physiological cellular form of the prion protein (PrPC) into an insoluble, partially protease‐resistant abnormal scrapie form (PrPSc). PrPCExpand

Resveratrol downregulates Akt/GSK and ERK signalling pathways in OVCAR-3 ovarian cancer cells.
Phytochemicals constitute a heterogeneous group of substances with an evident role in human health. Their properties on cancer initiation, promotion and progression are well documented. ParticularExpand

Characterisation of the H(+)/peptide cotransporter of eel intestinal brush-border membranes.
H(+)/peptide cotransport in brush-border membrane vesicles (BBMVs) from eel (Anguilla anguilla) intestine was studied by measuring d-[(3)H]-phenylalanyl-l-alanine uptake and by monitoringExpand

Carbonic anhydrase activity in tissues of the icefish Chionodraco hamatus and of the red-blooded teleosts Trematomus bernacchii and Anguilla anguilla.
Carbonic anhydrase (CA) activity was measured in blood, intestine, kidney and gill of two Antarctic teleosts, the haemoglobinless Chionodraco hamatus and the red-blooded Trematomus bernacchii, and ofExpand
