      The bacterial metabolite 2-aminoacetophenone promotes association of pathogenic bacteria with flies 

      Kapsetaki, Stefania Elisavet; Tzelepis, Ilias; Avgousti, Kalodoti; Livadaras, Ioannis; Garantonakis, Nikos G.; Varikou, Kyriaki N.; Apidianakis, Yiorgos (2014)
      Bacteria contaminate insects and secrete metabolites that may affect insect behaviour and potentially fitness through unknown mechanisms. Here we show that the 'grape-like' odorant 2-aminoacetophenone (2AA), secreted by ...

      A metabolite of equine estrogens, 4-hydroxyequilenin, induces DNA damage and apoptosis in breast cancer cell lines 

      Chen, Y.; Liu, X.; Pisha, E.; Constantinou, Andreas I.; Hua, Y.; Shen, L.; Van Breemen, R. B.; Elguindi, E. C.; Blond, S. Y.; Zhang, Fengwangdong; Bolton, J. L. (2000)
      Estrogen replacement therapy has been correlated with an increased risk of developing breast or endometrial cancer. 4-Hydroxyequilenin (4-OHEN) is a catechol metabolite of equilenin which is a minor component of the estrogen ...
