Regulation of gene expression

, : Regulation of gene expression. New England Journal of Medicine 331(14): 931-933

Progress has been made in understanding the molecular basis of a number of clinical manifestations of thyroid disease, yet many questions remain. Why are there two thyroid hormone-receptor genes? Is the function of each of the two receptors indeed unique? How T3 receptors interact with other nuclear proteins and DNA-binding sites and how these interactions are influenced by T3 is incompletely understood. The developmental regulatory role of T3 receptor alpha 1 and its non-T3-binding alpha 2 variant needs to be defined. Most T3-regulated processes, especially those related to metabolism, muscle contraction, and brain development, function in concert with a number of other regulatory factors. The therapeutic applications of knowledge gained about the basic mechanisms of thyroid hormone action should ultimately extend beyond thyroid disease to processes regulated or influenced by T3; these include cardiac function, lipid metabolism, pituitary hormone secretion, and neural development.

A several centimeter thick, H2S-oxidizing microbial mat was encountered in a high-latitude Arctic fjord. Microscopic investigations revealed that the mat contained numerous filamentous bacteria, and fluorescence in situ hybridization showed that t...

In vitro steroidogenesis in the mature ovaries of a freshwater teleost, the ayu (P. altivelis), was examined. Cell-free homogenates of the ovaries of untreated fish or fish treated with a salmon gonadotropin (SG-100) were aerobically incubated wit...
