Remarks / more information:

Kraus , LeeThe Kraus Lab is interested in the basic mechanisms of nuclear signaling and gene regulation by small molecules and how these signaling pathways relate to human physiology (e.g., reproduction, metabolism, cellular differentiation and development) and disease states (cancers, inflammation, stress). We have focused our efforts on two distinct, but likely related, nuclear signaling pathways: one controlled by estrogens-a class of steroid hormones-and another controlled NAD -a metabolic cofactor whose signaling actions in the nucleus are only just beginning to be understood.
