Pleiotropic Effects of Myostatin are Associated with Differences in Stem/Progenitor Cell Pools
Myostatin is best known as a negative regulator of skeletal muscle growth, although it influences a number of physiological and developmental systems. Moreover, the myokine circulates, and based on limited studies with ...
Genetic Pathways Involved in Omega-6 Fatty Acid-Induced Sterility in C. elegans
Polyunsaturated fatty acids serve both structural and functional roles as membrane components as well as precursors for a number of different factors involved in inflammation and signaling. Humans are unable to synthesize ...
COMPARATIVE CHARACTERIZATION OF HEPATOCYTE GROWTH FACTOR AND MACROPHAGE STIMULATING PROTEIN IN PANCREATIC AND GLIOBLASTOMA CANCER MODELS
Pancreatic cancer and glioblastoma (GB) are aggressive cancers with poor prognoses for which no curative treatment exists. Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and macrophage stimulating protein (MSP) along with their respective ...
Critical roles for lipid synthesis in Caenorhabditis elegans
Multicellular organisms depend on lipids for compartmentalization of cells and organelles. Additionally, lipids are critical for energy storage, and some lipids act as potent signaling molecules. To meet these diverse ...
