Characterization of Glucocorticoid-Induced Changes in Gene Expression in the Embryonic Pituitary Gland
We have previously shown that corticosterone (CORT) can induce premature differentiation of somatotrophs in the chicken embryo. CORT induction of GH mRNA is indirect, in that protein synthesis inhibition blocks its inducing ...
IDENTIFICATION OF A NON-CLASSICAL GLUCOCORTICOID-RESPONSIVE ELEMENT IN THE 5'-FLANKING REGION OF THE CHICKEN GROWTH HORMONE GENE
Growth hormone (GH) effects growth and contributes to a lean phenotype in broiler chickens. GH secretion by the anterior pituitary begins on embryonic day (e) 14, concomitantly with a rise in adrenal glucocorticoids (GC) ...
COMPARATIVE STUDY OF LIPOPROTEIN METABOLISM IN MAREK'S DISEASE SUSCEPTIBLE AND RESISTANT LINES
Marek's disease virus (MDV) infection causes atherosclerosis, and prior vaccination prevented the development of this disease. Two main strategies to resist Marek's disease (MD) have been demonstrated: vaccination and ...
