- Lipogenesis impaired in periparturient rats exposed to altered gravity is independent of prolactin and glucocorticoid secretionOsman V Patel
Department of Animal Science, Michigan State University, B290 Anthony Hall, East Lansing, MI 48824, USA
Eur J Appl Physiol 104:847-58. 2008..These data suggest that reduced lipogenesis in HG exposed dams is independent of PRL and GC secretion but may be associated with dysregulation of multiple metabolic regulators at the level of mRNA expression...
- Tissue-specific variation in expression of prolactin receptor gene subtypes in hypergravity-exposed ratsOsman V Patel
Department of Animal Science, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI 48824, USA
J Gravit Physiol 14:P129-30. 2007..In summary, these data reveal that the hypergravity-induced downregulation of PRLR is not directly triggered by deranged distribution of PRLR isoforms...
- Identification of novel bovine cumulus cell molecular markers predictive of oocyte competence: functional and diagnostic implicationsAnilkumar Bettegowda
Laboratory of Mammalian Reproductive Biology and Genomics and Departmentsof Animal Science, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan 48824, USA
Biol Reprod 79:301-9. 2008..The present results support a functional role for cumulus cell cathepsins in compromised oocyte competence and suggest that cumulus cell cathepsin mRNA abundance may be predictive of oocyte quality...
