    To study how the expression of alpha-tocopherol transfer protein (alpha-TTP) and its mRNA are affected by protein and vitamin E status, Long-Evans male weanling rats were fed a vitamin E-deficient (DE), high vitamin E (HE, 5 g/kg diet of all-rac-alpha-tocopheryl acetate) or control (C) diet for...

    Cholesterol is converted into dozens of primary and secondary bile acids through pathways subject to negative feedback regulation mediated by the nuclear receptor farnesoid X receptor (FXR) and other effectors. Disruption of the sterol 12alpha-hydroxylase gene (Cyp8b1) in mice prevents the...

    The heat shock protein (HSP) system is a mechanism of cell defense induced by stress, constitutively expressed during basal conditions and essential to the maintenance of cellular integrity. Acutely induced HSP synthesis decreases with aging, but the effect of age on the basal expression of...

    Although it is widely accepted that the regulation of the chromatin landscape is pivotal to conveying the epigenetic program, it is still unclear how a defined chromatin domain is reproduced following DNA replication and transmitted from one cell generation to the next. Here, we review the...

  • Leptin's effect on puberty in mice is relayed by the ventral premammillary nucleus and does not require signaling in Kiss1 neurons. Donato Jr., Jose; Cravo, Roberta M.; Frazão, Renata; Gautron, Laurent; Scott, Michael M.; Lachey, Jennifer; Castro, Inar A.; Margatho, Lisandra O.; Lee, Syann; Lee, Charlotte; Richardson, James A.; Friedman, Jeffrey; Chua Jr., Streamson; Coppari, Roberto; Zigman, Jeffrey M.; Elmquist, Joel K.; Elias, Carol F.; Donato, Jose Jr; Frazão, Renata; Chua, Streamson Jr // Journal of Clinical Investigation;Jan2011, Vol. 121 Issue 1, p355 

    Studies in humans and rodents indicate that a minimum amount of stored energy is required for normal pubertal development. The adipocyte-derived hormone leptin is a key metabolic signal to the neuroendocrine reproductive axis. Humans and mice lacking leptin or the leptin receptor (LepR) (ob/ob...

    ER stress occurs in macrophage-rich areas of advanced atherosclerotic lesions and contributes to macrophage apoptosis and subsequent plaque necrosis. Therefore, signaling pathways that alter ER stress-induced apoptosis may affect advanced atherosclerosis. Here we placed Apoe-/- mice deficient in...

    Insulin's effect on the synthesis of liver proteins remains to be fully defined. Previous studies using various surrogate measures of amino acyl-tRNA have reported variable results of insulin's effect on liver protein synthesis. We determined the effect of insulin with or without amino acid...

    Studies in humans and animal models indicate a key contribution of angiotensin II to the pathogenesis of glomerular diseases. To examine the role of type 1 angiotensin (AT1) receptors in glomerular inflammation associated with autoimmune disease, we generated MRL-Faslpr/lpr (lpr) mice lacking...
