Hinds, Terry University of Toledo Health Science Campus   My lab investigates nuclear receptors, which are ligand-activated transcription factors that control a myriad of genetics as a response to nutrition and metabolism. Over the past several years, and currently, we have been studying how nutrients from the diet and stress hormones (fatty acids, glucocorticoids, e.g., cortisol) regulate obesity and diabetes. Recently, we discovered an unexpected role for bilirubin as a ligand for nuclear receptors (PPARalpha) to attenuate metabolic diseases. Before our findings, bilirubin was only considered as an antioxidant and toxic bile substance with no other signaling function. We are interested in the bilirubin liver-gut signaling axis and how the microbiome catabolism of bilirubin in obesity and alcohol-induced liver damage. New work in my lab has found electronic cigarette (E-cig)-nicotine induced metabolic dysfunction (via nuclear receptors) from an altered liver-brain signaling axis. Nicotine addiction and insulin-resistant diabetic pathways for unknown reasons have some overlapping signaling mechanisms, and we are interested in how these relate to metabolic dysfunction. Overall, my lab looks at how nuclear receptors signal for organismal metabolic balance and glucose homeostasis.
