Molecular aspects of the link between obesity, insulin resistance and breast cancer. (2010)
Thesis
WEICHHAUS, M.G. 2010. Molecular aspects of the link between obesity, insulin resistance and breast cancer. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Obesity is a multi-factorial metabolic disease, resulting in increased adipose tissue acquisition by the host. This disease increases the risk for developing co-morbidities, including Metabolic Syndrome and other disorders such as breast cancer. Obes...

The effect of CLAs on the expression of PKC isoforms and cell viability in breast cancer cell lines. (2008)
Thesis
CRABB-WYKE, R. 2008. The effect of CLAs on the expression of PKC isoforms and cell viability in breast cancer cell lines. Robert Gordon University, MPhil thesis.

Breast tumours make up 15% of the total cancer burden in the UK and around 8% of the total number of cancer related deaths. Protein kinase C (PKC) isoforms have been shown to be strongly modulated in many androgen sensitive tumour cell lines. Increas...

Biomarkers of oxidative stress in models of schizophrenia. (2007)
Thesis
YOUNG, J., 2007. Biomarkers of oxidative stress in models of schizophrenia. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Increasing evidence indicates that oxidative injury exists in schizophrenia. Although it may not be the main cause, oxidative damage has been suggested to contribute to the pathophysiology and may account for deteriorating course and poor outcome in...

Evaluation of the quality of individual quick frozen fish products. (2007)
Thesis
SEREMETI, M.M. 2007. Evaluation of the quality of individual quick frozen fish products. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

In the present study the effects of characteristic freezing times and storage time at -22°C on the quality of the adductor muscle of post-rigor scallops (Pecten maximus)and gilthead seabream fillets (Sparusa urata) were studied in regard to the inte...
