Project Description:

Dr. Locniskar continued studying linoleic acid, an omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid, and the role it seems to play in protein kinase C activation and distribution, that is essential for normal cell communication. She has shown that diets high in linoleic acid have decreased chemically-induced skin carcinogenesis when fed in the promotion stage.
