Virtual Seminar – Jessica Tollkuhn, PhD – “Estrogen Regulation of Gene Expression in the Brain”
September 11, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Jessica Tollkuhn, PhD
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
About the Speaker: The Tollkuhn Lab seeks to understand how transient events during brain development exert lasting effects on gene expression, circuit function and, ultimately, behavior. We study how sex-specific neural circuits in rodents are established and modulated by the gonadal hormones estrogen and testosterone. The cognate receptors for these hormones are nuclear receptor transcription factors, which orchestrate modification of local chromatin environment and thus exert long-term effects on gene expression. However, the genes regulated by these receptors, as well as the specific mechanisms they utilize, remain poorly understood in the brain. This is in part because the extraordinary cellular heterogeneity of the brain complicates analysis of the small subpopulations of neurons that mediate sex-specific behaviors.
