Neuroendocrine and behavioral effects of maternal exposure to oral bisphenol A in female mice.
TLDR
Developmental exposure to BPA at reference doses did not masculinize and defeminize the neural circuitry underlying sexual behavior in female mice.
Comparative genomics provides evidence for close evolutionary relationships between the urotensin II and somatostatin gene families
TLDR
The chromosomal localization of the genes encoding UII- and somatostatin-related peptides in several vertebrate species and the results suggest that these two genes arose themselves through a tandem duplication of a single ancestral gene appear to belong to the same superfamily.
Expression of tyrosine hydroxylase and vasopressin in magnocellular neurons of salt‐loaded aged rats
TLDR
An ectopic expression of TH in hypothalamic neurons of aged rats and a TH expression linked to the activation of VP neurons but unrelated to VP synthesis are demonstrated.
Specific features of chronic astrocyte gliosis after experimental central nervous system (CNS) xenografting and in Wobbler neurological mutant CNS.
This study sets out to compare and contrast the astrocyte reaction in two unrelated experimental designs both resulting in marked chronic astrogliosis and natural motoneuron death in the wobbler
Reactive oxygen species are required for the hypothalamic osmoregulatory response.
TLDR
It is established that hyperosmolarity causes ROS production in the SON, which is essential for AVP increase, demonstrating the importance of free radicals as physiological signaling molecules in the regulation of body-fluid balance.
Occurrence of two distinct urotensin II-related peptides in zebrafish provides new insight into the evolutionary history of the urotensin II gene family.
TLDR
The study reveals the occurrence of four distinct UII paralogous systems in vertebrates that may exert distinct functions, both in tetrapods and teleosts.
Neural Mechanisms Underlying the Disruption of Male Courtship Behavior by Adult Exposure to Di(2-ethylhexyl) Phthalate in Mice
TLDR
Data demonstrate the critical role of neural AR in courtship vocalizations and raises the possibility that the vulnerability of this signaling pathway to exposure to endocrine disrupters may be detrimental for courtship communication and mating in several species.
