Exposure to some compounds with estrogenic activity, during fetal development, has been shown to alter development of reproductive organs, leading to abnormal function and disease either after birth or during adulthood. In order to understand the molecular events associated with the estrogenicity of different chemicals and to determine whether common sets(More)
RATIONALE Human rhinovirus infections cause colds and trigger exacerbations of lower airway diseases. OBJECTIVES To define changes in gene expression profiles during in vivo rhinovirus infections. METHODS Nasal epithelial scrapings were obtained before and during experimental rhinovirus infection, and gene expression was evaluated by microarray.(More)
The rat uterus responds to acute estrogen treatment with a series of well-characterized physiological responses; however, the gene expression changes required to elicit these responses have not been fully characterized. In order to understand early events induced by estrogen exposure in vivo, we evaluated the temporal gene expression in the uterus of the(More)
The effect of the dietary background of phytoestrogens on the outcome of rodent bioassays used to identify and assess the reproductive hazard of endocrine-disrupting chemicals is controversial. Phytoestrogens, including genistein, daidzein, and coumestrol, are fairly abundant in soybeans and alfalfa, common ingredients of laboratory animal diets. These(More)
Recently gene expression studies have been multiplied at an accelerated rate by the use of high-density microarrays. By assaying thousands of transcripts at a time, microarrays have led to the discovery of dozens of genes involved in particular biochemical processes, for example, the response of a tissue/organ to a given chemical with therapeutic or toxic(More)
