(BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, 2013-02-27) [Artigo]
Background: Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes various forms of acute and chronic skin damage, including immunosuppression, inflammation, premature aging and photodamage. Furthermore, it induces the generation ...
Orchidectomy enhances the expression of endothelin-1 and ETB receptors in rat portal vein
(Journal of Smooth Muscle Research, 2014) [Artigo]
Functional studies have shown that orchidectomy increases the effects of phenylephrine on rat portal veins, but that it is completely prevented in the presence of both ETA and ETB receptor antagonists. Although it suggests ...
