Effect of superstimulation on the expression of microRNAs and genes involved in steroidogenesis and ovulation in Nelore cows
(Theriogenology, 2018-04-01) [Artigo]
To better understand the impact of ovarian superstimulation on bovine follicular microenvironment, Nelore cows (Bos taurus indicus) were subjected to ovarian superstimulation with follicle stimulating hormone (FSH, n = 10; ...

Pharmacological characterization of cnidarian extracts from the Caribbean Sea: Evaluation of anti-snake venom and antitumor properties
(Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins Including Tropical Diseases, 2018-08-28) [Artigo]
Background: Cnidarians produce toxins, which are composed of different polypeptides that induce pharmacological effects of biotechnological interest, such as antitumor, antiophidic and anti-clotting activities. This study ...
Tobacco influence in heavy metals levels in head and neck cancer cases
(Environmental Science and Pollution Research, 2018-09-01) [Artigo]
Heavy metals intoxication is known to be risk factors for various diseases, including cancer. These metals may be presented in food and soil as well as in leaf and tobacco smoke. The aim of this study was to correlate the ...

Lipopolysaccharide and lipotheicoic acid differentially modulate epididymal cytokine and chemokine profiles and sperm parameters in experimental acute epididymitis
(Scientific Reports, 2018-01-08) [Artigo]
Bacterial infections are the most prevalent etiological factors of epididymitis, a commonly diagnosed inflammatory disease in the investigation of male infertility factors. The influence of early pathogenic mechanisms at ...
Can the antral follicular count modulate the gene expression of bovine oviducts in Aberdeen angus and nelore heifers?
(PLoS ONE, 2018-08-01) [Artigo]
The number of visible ovarian antral follicles (antral follicle count—AFC) is repeatable in bovine individuals, but highly variable between animals, and with differences between Bos taurus and Bos indicus breeds. Several ...
Pharmacogenomics of Hypertension and Preeclampsia: Focus on Gene-Gene Interactions
(Frontiers In Pharmacology, 2018-02-28) [Artigo]
Hypertension is a leading cause of cardiovascular mortality, but only about half of patients on antihypertensive therapy achieve blood pressure control. Preeclampsia is defined as pregnancy-induced hypertension and ...
