Exploring Estrogen’s Role in Metabolism and the Use of 13C-Labeled Nutrients for Advanced Animal Physiology and Nutrition Research

September 19, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Key Topics Include:

  • The role that estrogen plays in regulating metabolic and behavioral processes in males and females
  • The tissue-specific fluctuations of sex steroids throughout the estrous cycle
  • Insight into the importance of tissue-specificity in developing hormonal therapies
  • The importance of estrogen quantity in regulating physiological processes
  • Understand the diverse range of 13C labeled nutrients available
  • Specific applications of labeled amino acids in studies of protein metabolism, cellular signaling, and typical nutrient utilization
  • How to integrate 13C labeling techniques with respirometry for a comprehensive assessment of metabolic processes, energy expenditure, and substrate utilization in animal models
  • How to calculate metabolic rates in free-flying animals using 13C bicarbonate
