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 ...
Structural and ultrastructural evidence for telocytes in prostate stroma
(Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, 2013-03-01) [Artigo]
The prostate comprises a glandular epithelium embedded within a fibromuscular stroma. The stroma is a complex arrangement of cells and extracellular matrix (ECM) components in addition to growth factors, regulatory molecules, ...
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 ...
