(2012-02-06)In the female reproductive system, the ovary is the primary functional organ responsible for oocyte production, follicle maturation and synthesis of sex steroid hormones including estrogens. Throughout the lifetime of a ...
Identification of molecular signaling pathways underlying human endometrial stromal cell differentiation (2014-01-16)Decidualization, the differentiation of endometrial stromal cells, is essential for a successful pregnancy. Although the steroid hormones estrogen (E) and progesterone (P) are known to control decidualization, the precise ...
The role of ERα in the uterus during embryo implantation and in the ovary during ovarian tumorigenesis (2011-05-25)The molecular actions initiated by the steroid hormone estrogen elicit a multitude of biological effects in physiological and pathophysiological processes. Estrogen acts via its cognate steroid hormone receptor, estrogen ...
(2011-01-21)Transcription factors play a vital role in the biology of every organism. By controlling gene expression they regulate growth, development, metabolism, reproduction, signaling, and response to the environment. They have ...
