HSD11B1, HSD11B2, PTGS2, and NR3C1 Expression in the Peri-Implantation Ovine Uterus: Effects of Pregnancy, Progesterone, and Interferon Tau1
Abstract Establishment of pregnancy in ruminants requires conceptus elongation and production of interferon tau (IFNT), the pregnancy recognition signal that maintains the corpus luteum andExpand
Insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 in the ruminant uterus: potential endometrial marker and regulator of conceptus elongation.
Establishment of pregnancy in ruminants requires conceptus elongation and production of interferon-tau (IFNT), the pregnancy recognition signal that maintains ovarian progesterone (P4) production.Expand
Discovery of candidate genes and pathways in the endometrium regulating ovine blastocyst growth and conceptus elongation.
Establishment of pregnancy in ruminants requires blastocyst growth to form an elongated conceptus that produces interferon tau, the pregnancy recognition signal, and initiates implantation.Expand
ErbB-2 protein levels in healthy, asymptomatic women.
Abstract Recently, a number of studies have found a relationship between having breast cancer and elevated serological levels of the extracellular domain (ECD) of the erbB-2 protein. This studyExpand
Maternal arginine supplementation enhances thermogenesis in the newborn lamb.
Body temperature maintenance is one of the most important physiological processes initiated after birth. Brown adipose tissue (BAT) is an essential mediator of thermogenesis in many species and isExpand
Obesity increases hepatic glycine dehydrogenase and aminomethyltransferase expression while dietary glycine supplementation reduces white adipose tissue in Zucker diabetic fatty rats.
Obesity is associated with altered glycine metabolism in humans. This study investigated the mechanisms regulating glycine metabolism in obese rats. Eight-week-old Zucker diabetic fatty rats (ZDF; aExpand
