Systems Biology Analysis of the Fate and Effects of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in Models of Adipose Tissue and the Gut Microbiota

Manteiga, Sara.

Abstract: A growing body of evidence links exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) with obesity-related metabolic diseases. Adipose tissue (AT) plays a pivotal role in the development of obesity. AT actively regulates whole body energy homeostasis by orchestrating complex inter- and intra-cellular communications, effected via regulatory molecule networks. Sustained perturbation of metabo... read more
