The role of redox oscillation in circadian physiology of the suprachiasmatic nucleus and hippocampus (2018-12-04)The suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the hypothalamus is the master regulator of the circadian clock in mammals. It generates daily rhythms of behavior, metabolism, and other important physiological processes. Misalignment ...
(2018-07-10)The study of cell-to-cell signaling peptides contributes to the fundamental understanding of physiological processes and improves the effectiveness of pharmaceutical drugs. While protein synthesis in animals is stereospecific ...
Uncovering molecular mechanisms of the notch signaling pathway in the regulation of pituitary gland development (2018-06-29)The pituitary acts as a central mediator of the endocrine system, integrating both hypothalamic and peripheral signals to coordinate physiological functions through the release of hormones from distinct endocrine cell types ...
Novel tools to identify estrogen regulated genes important for breast and ovarian cancer cell proliferation (2018-03-20)Estrogens are steroid hormones produced by the ovaries and extra ovarian tissues including the adrenal gland and adipose tissue. There are 3 major physiologically relevant estrogens in the human body, the most potent and ...
Uncovering the role of notch signaling in development of hypothalamic nuclei in vivo and using in vitro microenvironments (2017-07-11)The hypothalamus is an ancient structure of the brain in many orders of vertebrates and invertebrates involved in nearly all homeostatic regulation in the body. These processes include, but are not limited to reproductive ...
