Current Research Interests 

Comparative molecular endocrinology, with emphasis on post-receptor signal transaction pathways mediating the actions of peptide hormones and neurotransmitters in fishes. Current focus is on the second messenger systems involved in gonadotropin-releasing hormone stimulation of gonadotropin and growth hormone release from cultured dispersed pituitary cells of the goldfish, as well as the receptor subtypes and mechanisms mediating biogenic amine actions on the release of these two pituitary hormones.


ZOOL 343 - Comparative Endocrinology

Endocrine systems and actions of hormones at the tissue, cell and molecular levels; vertebrate systems are emphasized. Prerequisite: ZOOL 242 or PHYSL 210 or 212 or 214.
