• Secretion
  • Groups of neuroendocrine neurons include: TIDA neurons, or tuberoinfundibular dopamine neurons, are neurons that regulate the secretion of prolactin from the pituitary gland and release the neurotransmitter dopamine. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dopamine released from their nerve endings at the median eminence is transported to the anterior pituitary gland, where it regulates the secretion of prolactin. (wikipedia.org)
  • glycogen
  • CD97 in colonic enterocytes strengthens E-cadherin-based adherens junctions to maintain lateral cell-cell contacts and regulates the localization and degradation of β-catenin through glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK-3β) and Akt signaling. (wikipedia.org)
  • sodium
  • Its chief function is to regulate the concentration of water and soluble substances like sodium by filtering the blood, reabsorbing what is needed and excreting the rest as urine. (wikipedia.org)
  • processes
  • Sleep homeostasis, the increase in sleep observed following sleep loss, is believed to counter the negative effects of prolonged waking by restoring vital biological processes that are degraded during sleep deprivation. (plos.org)
  • Since alveolar macrophages are pivotal regulators of local immunological homeostasis, their population density is decisive for the many processes of immunity in the lungs. (wikipedia.org)
  • function
  • K14-Cre-mediated deletion of CerS4 revealed a similar phenotype, thus suggesting an epidermis intrinsic function of CerS4 in regulating the regeneration of the pilosebaceous unit. (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • Our results suggest a novel function for MSA1 in the nucleus in regulating SAM biosynthesis and maintaining S homeostasis epigenetically via DNA methylation. (nottingham.ac.uk)
  • maintain
  • The Gaia hypothesis (/ˈɡaɪ.ə/ GYE-ə, /ˈɡeɪ.ə/ GAY-ə), also known as the Gaia theory or the Gaia principle, proposes that living organisms interact with their inorganic surroundings on Earth to form a synergistic and self-regulating, complex system that helps to maintain and perpetuate the conditions for life on the planet. (wikipedia.org)
  • Less accepted versions of the hypothesis claim that changes in the biosphere are brought about through the coordination of living organisms and maintain those conditions through homeostasis. (wikipedia.org)
  • complex
  • The Gaia hypothesis posits that the Earth is a self-regulating complex system involving the biosphere, the atmosphere, the hydrospheres and the pedosphere, tightly coupled as an evolving system. (wikipedia.org)
  • results
  • These results reveal that TREM2 regulates the rate of osteoclastogenesis and provide a mechanism for the bone pathology in NHD. (jimmunol.org)
  • production
  • We have previously demonstrated that mTORC1 positively regulates LPS-induced IL-10 production and suppresses IL-12 production via an autocrine action of IL-10 in mouse DCs in vitro ( 5 ). (jimmunol.org)
  • Conditions
  • Gaia evolves through a cybernetic feedback system operated unconsciously by the biota, leading to broad stabilization of the conditions of habitability in a full homeostasis. (wikipedia.org)
