Dietary Effects on Gene Expression in Mammary Tumorigenesis (1993)

Title:

Dietary Effects on Gene Expression in Mammary Tumorigenesis

Key words:

fat intake and consumption

Research Institution:

Montefiore Medical Center

Location:

New York

Researcher:

Polly Etkind

Project Description:

In her first grant, Dr. Etkind showed that a high fat diet causes increased gene expression and affects the dormancy period of tumor expression in mice. Dr. Etkind observed the mechanism by which this occurs and attempted to answer new questions: 1) at what percentage fat intake does gene expression begin; and 2) is there a specific time in life when fat consumption accelerates breast cancer risk.
