The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Department of Computer & Information Sciences involved in mathematically structured programming, similarity and metric search, computer security, software systems, combinatronics and digital health.

The Department also includes the iSchool Research Group, which performs leading research into socio-technical phenomena and topics such as information retrieval and information seeking behaviour.


Cyclic phosphatidic acid and its analogues can regulate ERK1/2 activity via LPA receptors

Cyclic phosphatidic acid (1-acyl-sn-glycerol-2,3 cyclic phosphate, cPA) and lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) are bioactive lipid mediators belonging to the small glycerophospholipids. Recent studies have shown that these compounds possess contrasting biological activities: LPA induces tumor cell proliferation and motility, while cPA suppresses metastasis and invasion of cancer cells. There are known at least eight LPA receptors involved in LPA signaling, however selective receptors of cPA are still unknown.
