Associated Factors of Sleep Quality and Behavior among Students of Two Tertiary Institutions in Northern Malaysia.
Poor sleep behavior among Malaysian tertiary students in this study was not associated with gender, academic performance and BMI, but was associated with craving of high-calorie foods instead.

The P49A SNP of the bitter receptor gene TAS2R38 could not serve as a predictor of anthropometric measurements and aversion to vegetables or sweet/fat foods in the sampled Malaysian subjects, and this suggests the existence of other possible factors influencing food selection among Malaysians.

The preference and intake frequency of the high sodium belacan-based dish asam laksa seems to be a good predictor for ethnic difference, discretionary salt use and blood pressures.
Leptin and leptin receptor gene polymorphisms and their association with plasma leptin levels and obesity in a multi-ethnic Malaysian suburban population
Interestingly, synergistic effect of the LEP and LEPR SNPs was observed as subjects homozygous for all four SNPs studied exhibited significantly higher subcutaneous fat and PLL than those with other genotype combinations.
Prevalence of Depression and Cognitive Distortion among a Cohort of Malaysian Tertiary Students
The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of depression, cognitive distortion and their asso- ciated factors among a cohort of 400 Malaysia tertiary students, recruited from 40…
Contamination of nuclear fractions with plasma membrane lipid rafts
The data indicate that the nuclear fraction isolated using such subcellular fractionation protocols is contaminated with components of plasma membrane lipid rafts and raises questions as to the integrity of thenuclear fraction isolated by such protocols for use in detailed cell biological studies and proteomics analysis.
Cellular prion protein contributes to LS 174T colon cancer cell carcinogenesis by increasing invasiveness and resistance against doxorubicin-induced apoptosis
The overexpression of PrPC could enhance the invasiveness and survival of LS 174T colorectal cancer cells, indicating that PrPC plays a role in coloreCTal cancer biology.
Palmitic acid induces neurotoxicity and gliatoxicity in SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma and T98G human glioblastoma cells
The results suggest that HFD may cause neuronal and astrocytic damage, which indirectly proposes that CNS pathologies involving neuroinflammation and reactive gliosis could be prevented via the diet regimen.
