Exposure of neonatal rats to maternal cafeteria feeding during suckling alters hepatic gene expression and DNA methylation in the insulin signalling pathway (2013)
Journal Article
Daniel, Z., Akyol, A., McMullen, S., & Langley-Evans, S. C. (2013). Exposure of neonatal rats to maternal cafeteria feeding during suckling alters hepatic gene expression and DNA methylation in the insulin signalling pathway. Genes and Nutrition, 9(1), doi:10.1007/s12263-013-0365-3

Nutrition in early life is a determinant of lifelong physiological and metabolic function. Diseases that are associated with ageing may, therefore, have their antecedents in maternal nutrition during pregnancy and lactation. Rat mothers were fed eith... Read More

Peptic digestion of beef myofibrils is modified by prior marination (2013)
Journal Article
Patel, N., & Welham, S. J. (2013). Peptic digestion of beef myofibrils is modified by prior marination. Food and Nutrition Research, 57(20294), doi:10.3402/fnr.v57i0.20294

Background: Preparatory steps such as seasoning, marination, and cooking may induce changes in meat which affects the ability of the stomach to adequately digest it. This may result in peptide chains reaching the colon intact where resident bacteri... Read More

Synergism between cAMP and PPARγ signalling in the initiation of UCP1 gene expression in HIB1B brown adipocytes (2013)
Journal Article
Chen, H., Liu, Q., Salter, A. M., & Lomax, M. A. (2013). Synergism between cAMP and PPARĪ³ signalling in the initiation of UCP1 gene expression in HIB1B brown adipocytes. PPAR Research, 2013(476049), doi:10.1155/2013/476049

Expression of the brown adipocyte-specific gene, uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1), is increased by both PPAR stimulation and cAMP activation through their ability to stimulate the expression of the PPAR coactivator PGC1. In HIB1B brown preadipocytes, comb... Read More
