Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-2 (TIMP-2) location in the ventral, lateral, dorsal and anterior lobes of rat prostate by immunohistochemistry
(Cell Biology International, 2007-03-01) [Artigo]
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their tissue inhibitors (TIMPs) play a major role in extracellular matrix component degradation in several normal and abnormal tissue situations; they are also found in human seminal ...
MMP-2 and TIMP-2 in the prostates of male and female mongolian gerbils: Effects of hormonal manipulation
(Histology and Histopathology, 2011-11-01) [Artigo]
TIMPs in the prostates of male and female gerbils and evaluated the effects of testosterone on the expression of these enzymes. Ventral prostates from male gerbils that were either intact or had been castrated for 7 or 21 ...
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 ...
Caffeine reduces cadmium accumulation in the organism and enhances the levels of antioxidant protein expression in the epididymis
(Reproductive Toxicology, 2013-01-01) [Artigo]
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of caffeine (20. mg/L) intake on cadmium (15. mg/L) accumulation in the rat blood, testes, epididymis and prostate as well as cadmium-induced changes to the antioxidant ...
Doxazosin reduces cell proliferation and increases collagen fibers in rat prostatic lobes
(Cell and Tissue Research, 2008-04-01) [Artigo]
We investigated the effects of doxazosin (Dox), an alpha-adrenoceptor antagonist used clinically for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), on the rat prostatic complex by assessing structural parameters, ...
