New mini-review article out!

Our group published a new mini-review on maternal photoperiodic programming. This is a phenomenon where the day length (photoperiod) a mother receives during gestation programs the pups growth trajectory and onset of reproduction, after birth. The current evidence point to tanycytes, specialised ependymal cells, to be the crux of this impressive programming of overall physiology and reproductive activity. The maternal photoperiodic programming phenomenon proves to be a good model for future investigations on the programming mechanisms within tanycytes, and their impact on whole-animal physiology. We seek to unravel this timing mechanism through Vebjørn` s ongoing PhD project.
