Prostatic stromal cells of old gerbils respond to steroidal blockades creating a microenvironment similar to reactive stroma
(Biomedicine and Aging Pathology, 2011-04-01) [Artigo]
The present study examined the changes in prostatic stroma of old gerbils (18 months) submitted to orchiectomy associated or not with steroidal blockades. Animals were divided into six groups, all surgically castrated ...
A new proposed rodent model of chemically induced prostate carcinogenesis: Distinct time-course prostate cancer progression in the dorsolateral and ventral lobes
(Prostate, 2013-08-01) [Artigo]
Background. Characterization of novel rodent models for prostate cancer studies requires evaluation of either spontaneous and carcinogen-induced tumors as well as tumor incidence in different prostatic lobes. We propose a ...
MMP-2 and MMP-9 localization and activity in the female prostate during estrous cycle
(General and Comparative Endocrinology, 2011-09-15) [Artigo]
The gerbil female prostate undergoes morphological and physiological changes resulting from hormonal fluctuations that occur during the reproductive cycle. These repetitive cycles of glandular growth and regression are ...
