Metabolic Regulation Research


1) Functional genomics analysis of serine deficiency knockout mouse models and cells
2) Characterization of molecular mechanisms underlying growth retarded phenotypes and neurological abnormalities exhibited by serine deficiency
3) Development of in vivo bioassay system for screening food components enhancing brain sfunction


Amino Acid, Knockout Mouse, Metabolic Disease Model, Nutrient-Gene Interaction, Omics, Serine

Research Theme

  1. Functional genomic analysis of animal models for human serine deficiency (knockout mouse, metabolic disease model, brain dysfunction, neuron-glia interaction)
  2. Molecular basis for metabolite-gene regulatory networks in animal nervous tissues(amino acids, brain, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics)
  3. Molecular mechanisms underlying recognition of amino acids deficiency (metabolic homeostasis, cell function, signal transduction)
