Investigating anabolic effects of thyroid hormones on mammary lipid synthesis for lactation

Hussam Rostom, University of Oxford



To investigate the effect of T3 on mammary mitochondrial and cytosolic pathways involved in lipid synthesis

Specific Objectives:

  1. Conduct untargeted metabolomics to evaluate metabolites influenced by T3 within the mammary cell cytosolic and mitochondrial compartments.
  2. Use isotopic tracers to measure T3-mediated metabolite flux in cytosolic and mitochondrial pathways involved in fatty acid biosynthesis.
