How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Elias Taylor currently works at the Department of Integrative Biology, University of Guelph. Elias does research in Endocrinology, Marine Biology and Developmental Biology. Their most recent publication is 'Evolution of thyroid hormone signaling in animals: Non-genomic and genomic modes of action'.
Thyroid hormones (THs) are small amino acid derived signaling molecules with broad physiological and developmental functions in animals. Specifically, their function in metamorphic development, ion regulation, angiogenesis and many others have been studied in detail in mammals and some other vertebrates. Despite extensive reports showing pharmacolo...
Thyroid hormones (THs) are important regulators of development, metabolism, and homeostasis in metazoans. Specifically, they have been shown to regulate the metamorphic transitions of vertebrates and invertebrates alike. Indirectly developing sea urchin larvae accelerate the formation of juvenile structures in response to thyroxine (T4) treatment,...
Nuclear receptors (NRs) are responsible for the regulation of diverse developmental and physiological systems in metazoans. NR actions can be the result of genomic and non-genomic mechanisms depending on whether they act inside or outside of the nucleus respectively. While the actions of both mechanisms has been shown to be crucial to NR functions,...
Thyroid hormones are important regulators of development and metabolism in animals. Their function via genomic and non-genomic actions is well-established in vertebrate species but remains largely elusive among invertebrates. Previous work suggests that thyroid hormones, principally 3,5,3′,5′-Tetraiodo-L-thyronine (T4), regulate development to meta...
Much research has focused on vertebrate thyroid hormone (TH) synthesis and their function in development and metabolism. While important differences in TH synthesis and signaling exist, comparative studies between vertebrates fail to explain the evolutionary origins of this important regulatory axis. For that, one needs to make sense out of the div...
