Molecular and Cellular Endocrinology, 309(1-2), 109–116.

By: Y. Wang n & G. LeBlanc n

author keywords: RXR; EcR; Methyl farnesoate; Daphnia; Tributyltin
MeSH headings : Amino Acid Sequence; Animals; Base Sequence; DNA, Complementary / genetics; DNA, Complementary / isolation & purification; Daphnia / drug effects; Daphnia / metabolism; Ecdysterone / pharmacology; Fatty Acids, Unsaturated / metabolism; Genes, Reporter; Humans; Ligands; Luciferases / metabolism; Male; Molecular Sequence Data; Open Reading Frames / genetics; Receptors, Steroid / metabolism; Retinoid X Receptors / chemistry; Retinoid X Receptors / genetics; Retinoid X Receptors / metabolism; Sequence Alignment; Sequence Homology, Amino Acid; Sex Determination Processes; Sex Ratio; Transcriptional Activation / drug effects
TL;DR: Results indicate that methyl farnesoate, along with compounds that are functionally similar to methyl farNESoate synergize with ecdysteroids to activate the RXR:EcR receptor complex, however, this effect appears to be unrelated to the ability of these compounds to stimulate male sex determination.

Effect of the plant compound indole-3-carbinol on hepatic cholesterol homoeostasis

Food and Chemical Toxicology, 32(7), 633–639.

By: G. Le Blanc n, J. Stuart n, S. Dunn n & W. Baldwin n

MeSH headings : Animals; Cholesterol / blood; Cholesterol / chemistry; Cholesterol 7-alpha-Hydroxylase / metabolism; Homeostasis / drug effects; Indoles / pharmacology; Liver / chemistry; Liver / drug effects; Male; Mice; Microsomes, Liver / chemistry; Microsomes, Liver / drug effects; Sterol Esterase / metabolism; Sterol O-Acyltransferase / metabolism
TL;DR: I3C lowers serum cholesterol levels at concentrations that have no discernible effect on hepatic cholesterol homoeostasis, and at higher doses of I3C, hepatic microsomal cholesterol levels are significantly lowered and ACAT activity is significantly elevated. (via Semantic Scholar)
