SOMATOTROPIN RESPONSE TO CORTICOSTERONE AND THE THYROID HORMONE T3 DURING CHICK EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT: INVOLVEMENT OF TYPE I AND TYPE II GLUCOCORTICOID RECEPTORS
Corticosterone (CORT) can stimulate growth hormone (GH) cell (somatotroph) differentiation and GH secretion on embryonic day (e) 12 but not e20 in the chicken. GH induction involves both glucocorticoid receptors (GR) and ...
The potential role of butyrophilin and xanthine oxidoreductase in controlling the amount and size of milk-fat droplets
The secretion of fat droplets from mammary epithelial cells requires the expression of two major proteins, butyrophilin1A1 (BTN) and xanthine oxidoreductase (XOR). Ablation of the BTN or XOR gene in mice results in the ...
Characterization of Chicken CAT-2 Isoforms
Lysine and arginine transport is primarily mediated by cationic amino acid transporters (CATs) in cells. The chicken CAT-2 (cCAT-2) transcript is alternatively spliced to three isoforms. Transcriptional and cellular ...
