Estrogen and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) play important roles in mammary gland development and breast cancer. SirT1 is a highly conserved protein deacetylase that can regulate the insulin/IGF-1 signaling in lower organisms, as well as a growing number of transcription factors, including NF-κB, in mammalian cells. Whether SirT1 regulates the IGF-1(More)
Prenatal exposure to low-dose radiation increases the risk of microcephaly and/or mental retardation. Microcephaly is also associated with genetic mutations that affect the non-homologous end-joining pathway of DNA double-strand break repair. To examine the link between these two causal factors, we characterized the neural developmental effects of acute(More)
