The following studies will be published in Endocrine Society journals. Before print, they are edited and posted online, in each journal’s Early Release section. You can access the journals via www.endo-society.org.
Theca cell–derived BMP4 and BMP7 down-regulate Cx43 expression and decrease GJIC activity in human granulosa cells. This biological effect is most likely mediated by a Smad-dependent pathway. Chang, Hsun-Ming; Cheng, Jung-Chien; Leung, Peter C.K. Theca-Derived BMP4 and BMP7 Down-Regulate Connexin43 Expression and Decrease Gap Junction Intercellular Communication Activity in Immortalized Human Granulosa Cells.

Confavreux, Cyrille B.; Szulc, Pawel; Casey, Romain; Boutroy, Stéphanie; Varennes, Annie; Vilayphiou, Nicolas; Goudable, Joelle; Chapurlat, Roland D. Higher Serum Osteocalcin Is Associated With Lower Abdominal Aortic Calcification Progression and Longer 10-Year Survival in Elderly Men of the MINOS Cohort.
Women with PCOS have higher global adiposity and increased amounts of visceral adipose tissue compared with control women, especially in the ip and mesenteric depots.
