Obesity is a risk factor for postmenopausal breast cancer. Adiponectin/Acrp30 is lower in obese individuals and may be negatively regulating breast cancer growth. Here we determined that five breast cancer cell lines, MDA-MB-231, MDA-MB-361, MCF-7, T47D, and SK-BR-3, expressed one or both of the Acrp30 receptors. In addition, we found that the addition of(More)
The interactions with bile salts of carboxylester lipases (EC 3.1.1.13) from human pancreatic juice and pig pancreas were characterized by physical methods. Bile salts cause a decrease in the fluorescence intensity of the proteins at the emission maximum of 333-335 nm. The concentration dependence of this decrease shows saturation behavior, is relatively(More)
