The research group conducts wide range of studies related to the physiological and pathological metabolism and its endocrine regulation in domestic animals. Epigenetic and metabolic effects of nutritional factors and feed additives on various tissues are of our special interest, with special emphasis on histone acetylation and the intracellular signaling pathways of insulin and glucagon. The detoxifying action of hepatic and intestinal drug-metabolizing cytochrome P450 enzymes and their alterations are intensively studied in our research projects, comparing the enzyme activities of several domestic and wild animal species.
