Skin exposure to UVB light induces a skin-brain-gonad axis and sexual behavior

August, 2021

Highlights

  • UVB exposure increases circulating sex-steroid levels in mice and humans
  • UVB exposure enhances female attractiveness and receptiveness toward males
  • UVB exposure increases females’ estrus phase, HPG axis hormones, and follicle growth
  • Skin p53 regulates UVB-induced sexual behavior and ovarian physiological changes

Post-Gastrulation Synthetic Embryos Generated Ex Utero from Mouse Naïve ESCs

August, 2022

Highlights

  • Advanced synthetic embryos (sEmbryos) self-assembled from ESCs in an ex utero setup
  • Naïve ESCs give rise to all embryonic and extra-embryonic compartments in sEmbryos
  • Post-gastrulation stem cell derived sEmbryos develop organ specific progenitors
  • Extra-embryonic compartments adequately develop in post-gastrulation whole sEmbryos
