Brain-derived neurotrophic factor and neurotrophin receptors modulate glutamate-induced phase shifts of the suprachiasmatic nucleus
(East Carolina University, 2006-08)
Light information reaches the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) through a subpopulation of retinal ganglion cells. Previous work raised the possibility that brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and its high-affinity ...
Induced ablation of skeletal muscle-specific estrogen receptor-alpha in adult female mice increased the susceptibility to develop skeletal muscle inflammation and glucose intolerance under chronic lipid overload
(East Carolina University, 2018-04-27)
Skeletal muscle-specific ER[alpha] appears to play important roles in regulating skeletal muscle glucose and lipid homeostasis. The overall aim of this dissertation was to determine whether skeletal muscle-specific ER[alpha] ...
Molecular Histology of EphrinA1 Expression in Mouse Heart Visualized Molecular Histology of EphrinA1 Expression in Mouse Heart Visualized with MALDI-MSI
(East Carolina University, 2018-07-25)
EphrinA1 is a tyrosine kinase receptor localized in the cellular membrane of healthy cardiomyocytes, the expression of which is lost upon myocardial infarction (MI). Intra-cardiac injection of the recombinant form of ...
