Docosahexaenoic acid inhibits insulin-induced activation of sterol regulatory-element binding protein 1 and cyclooxygenase-2 expression through upregulation of SIRT1 in human colon epithelial cells.


Multiple lines of compelling evidence from clinical and population-based studies support that hyperinsulinemia often accompanying obesity-associated insulin insensitivity promotes colon carcinogenesis. Insulin can acetylate, thereby activating sterol regulator element-binding protein 1 (SREBP-1), a prime transcription factor responsible for expression of… (More)
