Efects of growth hormone and cadmium on the transcription regulation of two metallothionein isoforms
The effect of growth hormone (GH) and cadmium (Cd) on metallothionein (MT) expression was investigated in hepatoma cells. In fish the constitutive isoform MT-B and the metal-responsive MT-A areExpand

PARP-I and p53 expression in Sertoli cell during rat ontogenesis
Poly ADP-ribose polymerase-I (PARP-I), a nuclear I I 3-kDa Zinc-finger protein, catalyze poly ADP-ribosilation reactions and is involved in many physiological and pathological conditions such as cellExpand
The vitamin D receptor is a common target for various drugs, and is of great interest due to the protective function that this vitamin exerts on the body. The presence of single nucleotideExpand
