Nucleocytoplasmic Shuttling of Thyroid Hormone Receptor

Hello, my name is Mary Stern. I am a rising senior and Biology Major. Over the summer I will be working in Dr. Allison’s Lab to try to clarify the role that exportin 7 may play in Thyroid Hormone Receptor Export from the Nucleus. Thyroid Hormone Receptor can shuttle between the Nucleus and Cytoplasm of a cell, enabling it to impact gene expression through actions as a transcription factor. Perhaps, a step should be taken back at this point to explain some of the information above in a little more depth.
