Regulation of oxytocin receptors and oxytocin receptor signaling.
Coventry, United Kingdom. In Semin Reprod Med, 2007
In the human uterus events are less clear, although a prominent role for inflammatory-related rapid-response genes and novel transcription factors such as hMafF (human homologue of chicken musculoaponeurotic fibrosarcoma oncogene family protein F) have been put forward.
Molecular regulation of the oxytocin receptor in peripheral organs.
Ōsaka, Japan. In J Mol Endocrinol, 2003
The nuclear fractions from up-regulated (term myometrium) and down-regulated (non-pregnant myometrium) tIssues show differential patterns of protein binding to the 5'-flanking region, and a human homologue of chicken MafF has been cloned as a term-myometrium-specific oxytocin receptor modulator.
Factors influencing the carcinogenicity of food chemicals.
Leicester, United Kingdom. In Toxicology, 1999
In recognition of these issues, the UK Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAFF) is funding a number of projects aimed at providing greater mechanistic understanding of the links between food and cancer, in order to offer detailed advice to the public.
