Transient Receptor Potential Channels (TRPs) are commonly expressed in the reproductive tissues in human. Many female reproductive processes have been associated with these TRPs. The mycotoxin zeranol or α-zearalanol is derived from fungi in the Fusarium family. Limited exposure to zeranol appears to be safe. In North America, farmers are using synthetic… CONTINUE READING
