Effects of Adenoviral Gene Transfer of C.elegans n-3 Fatty Acid Desaturase on Lipid Profile and Growth of Human Cancer Cells (2002)

Title:

Effects of Adenoviral Gene Transfer of C.elegans n-3 Fatty Acid Desaturase on Lipid Profile and Growth of Human Cancer Cells

Key words:

n-3 fatty acid desaturase, n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids

Research Institution:

Massachusetts General Hospital

Location:

Massachusetts

Researcher:

Jing X Kang

Project Description:

Dr. Kang investigated whether introducing a gene encoding an n-3 fatty acid desaturase into human tumor cells in culture would decrease the levels of more undesirable n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids and increase n-3 fatty acids, thus providing an anticancer effect.
