Inhibition of cellular proliferation by the genistein metabolite 5,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxyisoflavone is mediated by DNA damage and activation of the ATR signalling pathway
The cellular actions of genistein, and its in vivo metabolites, are believed to mediate the decreased risk of breast cancer associated with high soy consumption. The genistein metabolite, 5,7,3',4'-tetrahydroxyisoflavone ...
The relationship between television advertising, children's viewing and their requests to Father Christmas
Objective: Children's letters to Father Christmas provide an opportunity to use naturalistic methods to investigate the influence of television advertising. Methods: This study investigates the number of toy requests in ...

Reasoning in people with obsessive-compulsive disorder
Objectives. The aim of this study was to investigate the inductive and deductive reasoning abilities of people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Following previous research, it was predicted that people with OCD ...
Defense against Sclerotinia sclerotiorum in Arabidopsis is dependent on jasmonic acid, salicylic acid, and ethylene signaling
Genotypic differences in susceptibility of Arabidopsis thaliana to Sclerotinia sclerotiorum have not been reported due to the extreme susceptibility of this cruciferous plant. To overcome this limitation, we have established ...
Proteomic biomarkers of peripheral blood mononuclear cells obtained from postmenopausal women undergoing an intervention with soy isoflavones
The incidence of cardiovascular diseases increases after menopause, and soy consumption is suggested to inhibit disease development.
Neurabin-I is phosphorylated by Cdk5 : Implications for neuronal morphogenesis and cortical migration
The correct morphology and migration of neurons, which is essential for the normal development of the nervous system, is enabled by the regulation of their cytoskeletal elements. We reveal that Neurabin-I, a neuronal-specific ...
The Agricultural Document Library (ADLib) and its applications
In April 2004 the Agricultural Document Library (ADLib) was launched (www.adlib.ac.uk). It has been developed jointly by the Agriculture and Environment Research Unit (AERU) at the University of Hertfordshire and TLR ...
The horse handlers
Despite its enormous potential for harm, research suggests that some people, in certain circumstances, feel able to effectively manage and control their use of heroin in order to minimise risks. The authors have followed ...
