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 ...
Ionotropic but not metabotropic glutamatergic receptors in the locus coeruleus modulate the hypercapnic ventilatory response in unanaesthetized rats
(Acta Physiologica, 2013-05-01) [Artigo]
Aim: Central chemoreceptors are important to detect changes of CO2/H+, and the Locus coeruleus (LC) is one of the many putative central chemoreceptor sites. Here, we studied the contribution of LC glutamatergic receptors ...
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 ...
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 ...
