Several aberrant chromosomal constellations are known in men. Of these the karyotype XXY (Klinefelter syndrome, KS) is the most common chromosomal disorder with a prevalence of about one in 800 live-born boys. KS is associated with hypogonadism and is suspected to cause variable physical, physiological and cognitive abnormalities. As a supernumerary X(More)
The social environment plays an important role in modulating processes of the hormonal and behavioural profile of an animal in a variety of group-living species. In wild cavies for instance, unstable social environmental conditions during pregnancy and lactation lead to an infantilised biobehavioural profile of the male offspring. In the present study, the(More)
O1 Regulation of genes by telomere length over long distances Jerry W. Shay O2 The microtubule destabilizer KIF2A regulates the postnatal establishment of neuronal circuits in addition to prenatal cell survival, cell migration, and axon elongation, and its loss leading to malformation of cortical development and severe epilepsy Noriko Homma, Ruyun Zhou,(More)
Establishment and maintenance of the correct epigenetic code is essential for a plethora of physiological pathways and disturbed epigenetic patterns can provoke severe consequences, e.g. tumour formation. In recent years, epigenetic drugs altering the epigenome of tumours actively have been developed for anti-cancer therapies. However, such drugs could(More)
The Sertoli cell (SC)-specific knockout (KO) of connexin43 (Cx43) results in spermatogenic arrest at the level of spermatogonia and/or SC-only syndrome. Histology of the interstitial compartment suggests Leydig cell (LC) hyperplasia. Our aim has been to investigate possible effects of the SC-specific KO of Cx43 (SCCx43KO) on interstitial LC. We therefore(More)
