Lrp5 Controls Bone Formation by Inhibiting Serotonin Synthesis in the Duodenum
Loss- and gain-of-function mutations in the broadly expressed gene Lrp5 affect bone formation, causing osteoporosis and high bone mass, respectively. Although Lrp5 is viewed as a Wnt coreceptor,… Expand
Low testosterone levels are common and associated with insulin resistance in men with diabetes.

- 1 July 1987
A protein with biological activities similar to parathyroid hormone (PTH) has been purified from serum-free culture medium obtained from a human lung cancer cell line (BEN). A major protein band of… Expand
Impaired skeletal muscle development and function in male, but not female, genomic androgen receptor knockout mice

- 1 August 2008
To identify mechanisms of anabolic androgen action in muscle, we generated male and female genomic androgen receptor (AR) knockout (ARKO) mice, and characterized muscle mass, contractile function,… Expand
Amylin inhibits bone resorption while the calcitonin receptor controls bone formation in vivo
- R. Dacquin, R. Davey, +7 authors G. Karsenty
- Biology, Medicine

- 16 February 2004
Amylin is a member of the calcitonin family of hormones cosecreted with insulin by pancreatic β cells. Cell culture assays suggest that amylin could affect bone formation and bone resorption, this… Expand
Bone and metabolic health in patients with non-metastatic prostate cancer who are receiving androgen deprivation therapy.

Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) in men with prostate cancer increases the risk of osteoporotic fractures, type 2 diabetes and, possibly, cardiovascular events. There is considerable uncertainty… Expand
Genomic actions of the androgen receptor are required for normal male sexual differentiation in a mouse model.

Androgens mediate their effects in target cells via the androgen receptor (AR), which acts predominantly as a ligand-dependent transcription factor. In addition, androgens induce rapid activation of… Expand
Effect of Testosterone Treatment on Glucose Metabolism in Men With Type 2 Diabetes: A Randomized Controlled Trial
OBJECTIVE To determine whether testosterone therapy improves glucose metabolism in men with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and lowered testosterone. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We conducted a randomized,… Expand
Transgenic mice that express Cre recombinase in osteoclasts
To study the physiological control of osteoclasts, the bone resorbing cells, we generated transgenic mice carrying the Cre recombinase gene driven by either the tartrate‐resistant acid phosphatase… Expand
Continuous testosterone administration prevents skeletal muscle atrophy and enhances resistance to fatigue in orchidectomized male mice.
- Anna-Maree Axell, H. Maclean, +6 authors J. Zajac
- American journal of physiology. Endocrinology and…
- 18 April 2006
Androgens promote anabolism in skeletal muscle; however, effects on subsequent muscle function are less well defined because of a lack of reliable experimental models. We established a rigorous model… Expand
