Depth of the vadose zone controls aquifer biogeochemical conditions and extent of anthropogenic nitrogen removal.

We investigated biogeochemical conditions and watershed features controlling the extent of nitrate removal through microbial dinitrogen (N2) production within the surficial glacial aquifer located on ...

Modeling sewage leakage and transport in carbonate aquifer using carbamazepine as an indicator.

The Western Mountain Aquifer (Yarkon-Taninim) of Israel is one of the country's major water resources and partially flows through a karst system. During late winter 2013, maintenance actions were perf...

Microbial nanowires - electron transport and the role of synthetic analogues.

Electron transfer is central to cellular life, from photosynthesis to respiration. In the case of anaerobic respiration, some microbes have extracellular appendages that can be utilised to transport e...

Hepatocyte estrogen receptor alpha mediates estrogen action to promote reverse cholesterol transport during Western-type diet feeding.

Hepatocyte deletion of estrogen receptor alpha (LKO-ERα) worsens fatty liver, dyslipidemia, and insulin resistance in high-fat diet fed female mice. However, whether or not hepatocyte ERα regulates ...

Emerging organic pollutants in the vadose zone of a soil aquifer treatment system: Pore water extraction using positive displacement.

Trace organic compounds in effluents, water streams and aquifers are amply reported. However, the mobile pool of Emerging Organic Contaminants (EOCs) in the deep parts of the vadose zone is hard to es...

Postmenopausal Women Estrogen and Progesterone Infusion

The purpose of the study is to study the effects of aging, estrogen and progesterone on the brain. Specifically, we want to look at how the hypothalamus and pituitary (two small glands in...

Natural Versus Synthetic Vitamin B Complexes in Human

In a cross-over study the investigators evaluate the effects of natural (Panmol-B-Complex) versus synthetic vitamin B complexes to identify the bioavailability of distinct vitamins as well...

Regulation of Cervical Mucus Secretion

The purpose of this study is to help us determine how hormones impact the production of cervical mucus which is a fluid secreted by the opening of the uterus, also called the cervix. Durin...

Evaluating the Roles of Estrogen and Progesterone in Heart Metabolism

Estrogen and progesterone are two main female sex hormones. When a woman goes through menopause, the body's production of estrogen and progesterone significantly decreases. Recent studies ...

The Effects of Reproductive Hormones on Mood and Behavior

This study evaluates the effects of estrogen and progesterone on mood, the stress response, and brain function in healthy women. The purpose of this study is to evaluate how low levels of...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Natural hormones secreted by the THYROID GLAND, such as THYROXINE, and their synthetic analogs.

Peptides, natural or synthetic, that stimulate the release of PITUITARY HORMONES. They were first isolated from the extracts of the HYPOTHALAMUS; MEDIAN EMINENCE; PITUITARY STALK; and NEUROHYPOPHYSIS. In addition, some hypophysiotropic hormones control pituitary cell differentiation, cell proliferation, and hormone synthesis. Some can act on more than one pituitary hormone.

Compounds, either natural or synthetic, which block development of the growing insect.

Hormones secreted by insects. They influence their growth and development. Also synthetic substances that act like insect hormones.

Compounds that interact with ESTROGEN RECEPTORS in target tissues to bring about the effects similar to those of ESTRADIOL. Estrogens stimulate the female reproductive organs, and the development of secondary female SEX CHARACTERISTICS. Estrogenic chemicals include natural, synthetic, steroidal, or non-steroidal compounds.
