Homeodomain Proteins SIX3 and SIX6 Regulate Gonadotrope-specific Genes During Pituitary Development.
Ann Arbor, United States. In Mol Endocrinol, 27 May 2015
Six3 is expressed in an immature gonadotrope cell line and represses transcription of the early lineage-specific pituitary genes, GnRH receptor (GnRHR) and the common alpha subunit (Cga), while Six6 is expressed in a mature gonadotrope cell line and represses the specific beta subunits of LH and FSH (LHb and FSHb) that are expressed later in development.
Reproduction, smell, and neurodevelopmental disorders: genetic defects in different hypogonadotropic hypogonadal syndromes.
Liège, Belgium. In Front Endocrinol (lausanne), 2013
Interestingly, defects in PROKR2, FGFR1, FGF8, CHD7, DUSP6, and WDR11 genes are also associated with normosmic IHH, whereas mutations in KISS1/KISSR, TAC3/TACR3, GNRH1/GNRHR, LEP/LEPR, HESX1, FSHB, and LHB are only present in patients with normosmic IHH.
The medial habenula: still neglected.
Houston, United States. In Front Hum Neurosci, 2012
While the lateral habenula (LHb) has been extensively studied, the anatomically and histochemically distinct medial habenula (MHb) remains largely understudied.
Structural and functional proteomics of intracytoplasmic membrane assembly in Rhodobacter sphaeroides.
United States. In J Mol Microbiol Biotechnol, 2012
Functional aspects of the photosynthetic unit assembly process were monitored by fluorescence induction/relaxation measurements of the variable fluorescence arising from LH-bacteriochlorophyll a. Slowing of the rate of RC electron transfer turnover (τQA), as assessed from the relaxation phase, was correlated with the growth of the functional absorption cross section (σ) and LH2/LH1 molar ratios.
Luteinizing hormone beta mutation and hypogonadism in men and women.
Brasília, Brazil. In N Engl J Med, 2007
homozygous mutation of a 5' splice site in LHB: IVS2+1G-->C disrupts the splicing of messenger RNA, generating a gross abnormality in the processing of the luteinizing hormone beta-subunit mRNA, which abrogates the secretion of luteinizing hormone
