Temporal relationship between successful pancreas transplantation and control of ocular complications in alloxan-induced diabetic rats
(Transplantation Proceedings, 2008-03-01) [Artigo]
Purpose. The impact of pancreas transplantation (PT) on the progression of eye disease is still controversial. This study evaluated the course of retinopathy in transplanted rats in two different diabetic stages.Methods. ...
Heart failure alters matrix metalloproteinase gene expression and activity in rat skeletal muscle
(International Journal of Experimental Pathology, 2006-12-01) [Artigo]
Heart failure is associated with a skeletal muscle myopathy with cellular and extracellular alterations. The hypothesis of this investigation is that extracellular changes may be associated with enhanced mRNA expression ...
Exercise training increases myocardial inotropic response in food restricted rats
(International Journal of Cardiology, 2006-09-20) [Artigo]
This study evaluated the effects of exercise training on myocardial function and ultrastructure of rats submitted to different levels of food restriction (FR). Male Wistar-Kyoto rats, 60 days old, were submitted to free ...
Severe food restriction induces myocardial dysfunction related to SERCA2 activity
(Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2009-09-01) [Artigo]
Previous studies have shown that food restriction promotes myocardial dysfunction in rats. However, the molecular mechanisms that are responsible are unclear. We investigated the role of sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase ...
Lymphoproliferative response and T lymphocyte subsets in a medium-term multi-organ bioassay for carcinogenesis in Wistar rats
(Cancer Letters, 2000-06-30) [Artigo]
The lymphoproliferative response and T lymphocyte subsets were evaluated at different stages of carcinogenesis in male Wistar, rats sequentially initiated with N-diethylnitrosamine (DEN), N-butyl-N-4(hydroxybutyl)nitrosamine ...
Farming technology, biochemistry characterization, and protective effects of culinary-medicinal mushrooms Agaricus brasiliensis S. Wasser et al. and Lentinus edodes (Berk.) Singer: Five years of research in Brazil
(International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms, 2005-07-04) [Artigo]
The biotechnology, biochemical characterization, and protective effects of the himematsutake and shiitake mushrooms were studied for the Thematic Project, from 1998 to 2003. A new species, Agaricus Brasiliens is Wasser et ...
