Although both research areas have a completely different biological background, signalling processes are very important for the transcriptional activation of genes taking place under carnitine deprivation and CSF-1 inhibition.

The first research task is dealing with the effects L-carnitine as a nutrigenomical metabolite exerts upon gene expression. We study carnitine deficiency, itself defining a very critical clinical condition, followed by
