Genistein crosses the bioartificial oviduct and alters secretion composition (2017)
Journal Article
Simintiras, C. A., & Sturmey, R. G. (2017). Genistein crosses the bioartificial oviduct and alters secretion composition. Reproductive Toxicology, 71, (63-70). doi:10.1016/j.reprotox.2017.04.010. ISSN 0890-6238

The dietary derived isoflavone and oestrogen analogue, genistein, is known to perturb fundamental reproductive events such as implantation and embryo cleavage. However the question of whether genistein is able to traverse the oviduct epithelial monol... Read More about Genistein crosses the bioartificial oviduct and alters secretion composition.

Sexually dimorphic gene expression in bovine conceptuses at the initiation of implantation (2016)
Journal Article
Forde, N., Maillo, V., O'Gaora, P., Simintiras, C. A., Sturmey, R. G., Ealy, A. D., …Lonergan, P. (2016). Sexually dimorphic gene expression in bovine conceptuses at the initiation of implantation. Biology of Reproduction, 95(4), doi:10.1095/biolreprod.116.139857

In cattle, maternal recognition of pregnancy occurs on Day 16 via secretion of interferon tau (IFNT) by the conceptus. The endometrium can distinguish between embryos with different developmental competencies. In eutherian mammals, X-chromosome inact...
