Retrograde BMP Signaling Controls Synaptic Growth at the NMJ by Regulating Trio Expression in Motor Neurons
Retrograde signaling is essential for coordinating the growth of synaptic structures; however, it is not clear how it can lead to modulation of cytoskeletal dynamics and structural changes atExpand

Potential estrogenic activity of triclosan in the uterus of immature rats and rat pituitary GH3 cells.
Triclosan (5-chloro-2-(2,4-dichlorophenoxy)phenol; TCS) is used as an antimicrobial agent in personal care, pharmaceutical, industrial, and household products. In this study, we established an inExpand

Cell growth of ovarian cancer cells is stimulated by xenoestrogens through an estrogen-dependent pathway, but their stimulation of cell growth appears not to be involved in the activation of the
Although endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) may interfere with the endocrine system(s) of our body and have estrogenicity or androgenicity, the exact mechanism(s) underlying their detrimentalExpand

Parabens inhibit the early phase of folliculogenesis and steroidogenesis in the ovaries of neonatal rats
Parabens are widely used as anti‐microbial agents in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Recently, parabens have been shown to act as xenoestrogens, a class of endocrine disruptors. In theExpand

Degradation of bisphenol A by white rot fungi, Stereum hirsutum and Heterobasidium insulare, and reduction of its estrogenic activity.
Two lignin-degrading basidiomycetes, Stereum hirsutum and Heterobasidium insulare, were used to degrade bisphenol A (BPA) in culture, and the estrogenic activity of the degradation products wasExpand

Korean red ginseng extracts inhibit NLRP3 and AIM2 inflammasome activation.
Korean red ginseng extract (RGE) is one of the most popular natural herbs modulating the immune system. Although the effects of RGE on immunity have been reported, its effects on inflammasomes,Expand

Expression of human Calbindin-D(9k) correlated with age, vitamin D receptor and blood calcium level in the gastrointestinal tissues.
OBJECTIVE Calbindin-D(9k) (CaBP-9k) has been thought to be one of the important factors of calcium absorption and metabolism in the intestine. The understanding of CaBP-9k role in theExpand

Effects of estrogen and estrogenic compounds, 4-tert-octylphenol, and bisphenol A on the uterine contraction and contraction-associated proteins in rats
We examined the effects of estradiol (E2), 4-tert-octylphenol (OP), and bisphenol A (BPA) on uterine contractions in immature rats. The expression and localization of contraction-associated proteinsExpand

Differential role of progesterone receptor isoforms in the transcriptional regulation of human gonadotropin-releasing hormone I (GnRH I) receptor, GnRH I, and GnRH II.
Hypothalamic GnRH is a decapeptide that plays a pivotal role in mammalian reproduction by stimulating the synthesis and secretion of gonadotropins via binding to the GnRH receptor on the pituitaryExpand
