these direct STAT5 target genes, very little is known about the molecular mechanisms that contribute to the ability of STAT5A to regulate gene expression in adipocytes. To further investigate the functions of STAT5A in adipocytes, we sought to identify

studies have demonstrated that a large number of genes that are modulated by BPA induce negative health effects ( Singh & Li 2012 ). Specifically, BPA exposure during adipocyte differentiation affects gene expression and subsequently modulates adipose

Introduction Gene expression profiling of thyroid tumors has expanded our knowledge of the molecular biology of thyroid cancer. Several recent reviews addressed the biological and diagnostic aspects of microarray-based studies of thyroid cancer
