Antioxidant and intestinal anti-inflammatory effects of plant-derived coumarin derivatives
(Phytomedicine, 2014-02-15) [Artigo]
Background: Coumarins, also known as benzopyrones, are plant-derived products with several pharmacological properties, including antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Based on the wide distribution of coumarin ...
Influence of Superovulatory Protocols on In Vitro Production of Nellore (Bos indicus) Embryos
(Reproduction in Domestic Animals, 2010-10-01) [Artigo]
There are indications in the literature that delaying the period between ovarian superestimulation and ovum pick up (OPU) would induce follicles to a condition of initial atresia, which could be beneficial to oocyte ...
Endothelial AT(1) and AT(2) pathways in aortic responses to angiotensin II after stress and ethanol consumption in rats
(Stress-the International Journal On The Biology Of Stress, 2014-12-01) [Artigo]
Stress and ethanol are important cardiovascular risk factors. Their vascular and blood pressure (BP) effects were evaluated alone and in combination. Adult male Wistar rats (8-10 per group) were separated into control, ...
Differential Expression of IGF Family Members in Heat-Stressed Embryos Produced In Vitro from OPU-Derived Oocytes of Nelore (Bos indicus) and Holstein (Bos taurus) Cows
(Reproduction in Domestic Animals, 2013-12-01) [Artigo]
Contents The IGF system is related to embryo quality. We aim to determine the effect of the heat stress on the mRNA expression of IGF1 and IGF2, IGFR1 and IGFR2, IGFBP2 and IGFBP4, and PAPPA in in vitro production (IVP) ...
Trophectoderm complementation assay to iPS cells: a proposal to the cattle
(Transgenic Research, 2014-10-01) [Resumo]
Reproductive tract development and puberty in two lines of Nellore heifers selected for postweaning weight
(Theriogenology, 2013-07-01) [Artigo]
The objective was to evaluate reproductive tract development (ovary and uterus) and onset of puberty in two lines of Nellore heifers (Bos indicus) selected for postweaning weight. A total of 123 heifers, including 46 from ...
Differential phosphorylation, desensitization, and internalization of α1A-adrenoceptors activated by norepinephrine and oxymetazoline
(Molecular Pharmacology, 2013-04-01) [Artigo]
Loss of response on repetitive drug exposure (i.e., tachyphylaxis) is a particular problem for the vasoconstrictor effects of medications containing oxymetazoline (OXY), an α1-adrenoceptor (AR) agonist of the imidazoline ...
Expression of fibroblast growth factor 10 and cognate receptors in the developing bovine ovary
(Theriogenology, 2014-06-01) [Artigo]
In the mammalian ovary, FGF10 is expressed in oocytes and theca cells and is a candidate for paracrine signaling to the developing granulosa cells. To gain insight into the participation of FGF10 in the regulation of fetal ...
Modulation of target genes on intestinal inflammation after curative treatment with Pfaffia paniculata (Brazilian ginseng) extract
(Planta Medica, 2014-11-01) [Resumo]
Tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase-1 polymorphism, plasma TIMP-1 levels, and antihypertensive therapy responsiveness in hypertensive disorders of pregnancy
(Pharmacogenomics Journal, 2014-12-01) [Artigo]
Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase (TIMP)-1 is a major endogenous inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9, which may affect the responsiveness to therapy in hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. We examined whether ...
