Research in Dr. White’s laboratory is directed towards understanding aspects of prolac-tin and growth hormone gene expression in the rat pituitary and rat pituitary tumor cell lines. Recent work has focused on the relationship between Ca2+-dependent cell-cell adhesion and prolactin gene expression. Also, the molecular mechanisms involved in post- transcriptional regulation of prolactin gene expression are being studied. In other work, Dr. Bruce White and Dr. John Peluso (OB/GYN) are collaborating in a study of ovarian physiology. Specifically, the molecular mechanisms by which hormonal signals induce ovarian cells to proliferate and differentiate are being studied. Recent work has demonstrated that the orphan nuclear hormone receptor transcription factor, steroidogenic factor 1 (SF1), is expressed in the rat ovary, and is required for normal estrogen biosynthesis by follicle cells.
