Besides being the most popular drug in the world, caffeine is an attractive tool used in research to help us answer fascinating scientific questions, because caffeine impinges on a number of molecular pathways. In my research, I used caffeine to study DNA repair pathways and insect xenobiotic...
In differentiating cells, genes are silenced or transcribed through changes in chromatin organization. Active chromatin is known as euchromatin and repressive chromatin is known as heterochromatin. These active or repressive states are initiated and maintained by modifying residues of the core...
Pulses of ecdysone, a steroid hormone, play an integral role during insect development however, how these ecdysone pulses are regulated has been relatively unexplored. I have shown that the presence of nitric oxide (NO) within the larval prothoracic gland (PG), the principal source of larval...
