Description

Abstract Text:
The impacts of chemicals that can mimic the actions of estrogens on physiological systems like energy balance (weight gain, food intake, glucose, etc.), and thereby contribute to the obesity epidemic in both juvenile and adult populations, are of increasing interest to the scientific community, regulatory organizations and the general population. The research outlined in the project will determine the underlying cellular mechanisms behind these effects using unique transgenic strains of mice exposed both during development and in adulthood to environmental estrogens delivered to humans through food production, storage and distribution. Because many of these environmental estrogens are found in food containers and used in food production, the data from this research project may inform governmental decision-making in regards to the safety of food both at the state and federal level.

It is important to recognize, and consider in any interpretation of Federal RePORTER data, that the publication and patent information cannot be associated with any particular year of a research project. The lag between research being conducted and the availability of its results in a publication or patent award varies substantially. For that reason, it's difficult, if not impossible, to associate a publication or patent with any specific year of the project. Likewise, it is not possible to associate a publication or patent with any particular supplement to a research project or a particular subproject of a multi-project grant.
