THE IMPACT OF CULTURE MEDIA ON THE IN VITRO PRODUCTION OF CAT BLASTOCYSTS AND EXPLANT QUALITY
Continued improvements in embryo culture media composition allow for the growth of high quality blastocysts, which can be used to derive embryonic stem cells (ESCs). ESCs are capable of becoming any cell type in the body ...
The Potential Role of Milk-Fat-Globule Membrane (MFGM) Proteins in Regulating the Size of Milk-Lipid Droplets
The aim of this thesis was to identify protein factors that may regulate the size of lipid droplets in milk. To address this hypothesis, the relative amounts of specific MFGM proteins on lipid droplets fractionated according ...
DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF CD4+ T CELL EPIGENETIC STATUS IN CHICKENS FOLLOWING MDV INFECTION AND DURING DIFFERENTIATION IN MICE
Epigenetic modifications constitute a complicated regulatory network controlling various biological processes from cell development to immune responses. The mechanisms through which CD4+ T cells react to environmental ...
The Role of Adipocyte Lipid Droplet Lipolysis in Thermogenesis and Metabolic Health
My thesis was focused on the role of Comparative Gene Identification-58 (CGI-58)-mediated adipocyte lipid droplet (LD) lipolysis in thermogenesis and metabolic health. LD lipolysis in energy-dissipating brown adipose tissue ...
The Importance of Transfer Receptor 1 in Adipose Tissue
Iron homeostasis is essential for maintaining cellular function in a variety of cell types. Transferrin receptor 1 (TfR1), which is expressed ubiquitously, facilitates cellular iron (Fe) uptake through receptor-mediated ...
