Dr. Tetel's general research area is studying how the ovarian steroid hormones, estradiol and progesterone, act in the brain to regulate gene expression and female reproductive behavior in rodents. These hormones elicit many of their effects on reproduction by binding to their respective intracellular receptors located in specific brain regions. Recently, nuclear receptor coactivators have been found to dramatically enhance the transcriptional activity of steroid receptors. Dr. Tetel is exploring how these coactivators function with steroid receptors in brain to activate behaviorally-relevant genes. His research uses immunohistochemical and Western blot techniques to analyze neural protein expression and antisense technology to explore the function of these coactivators in brain.
