Murine and human skin express an abundance of lipoxygenase isoforms whose functions are not understood. Substantial data have implicated a role for the 'platelet-type' 12-lipoxygenase (P-12LO) metabolite, 12(S)-hydroxy-eicosatetraenoic acid (12-HETE), in a variety of tumor functions. Using P-12LO deficient mice, we sought to examine the role of the P-12LO(More)
The roles of fatty acids in the skin have been under investigation since early reports of the phenotypic abnormalities of mice fed a diet deficient in essential fatty acids. Little is known about the functional significance of fatty acid metabolism by lipoxygenases in epidermis. Here, we have examined the role of platelet-type 12-lipoxygenase which converts(More)
One of the most alarming observations of iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) is neurological cretinism which is caused due to lack of T3 during the crucial stages of brain development. We have developed an iodine-deficient rat model to study the pattern of T3 receptor genes expression in the brain during postnatal development under iodine deficiency. We(More)
