Effects of maternal diabetes on male offspring: high cell proliferation and increased activity of MMP-2 in the ventral prostate
(Cell And Tissue Research, 2014-10-01) [Artigo]
This study presents a comprehensive view of the histological and functional status of the prostate of adult rat offspring of mothers subjected to gestational diabetes induced by alloxan. The ventral prostate of male adult ...
Ultrastructural characteristics of spermatogenesis in Pallas's mastiff bat, Molossus molossus (Chiroptera: Molossidae)
(Microscopy Research and Technique, 2012-07-01) [Artigo]
Despite the large number of species, their wide distribution, and unique reproductive characteristics, Neotropical bats have been poorly studied, and important aspects of the reproduction of these animals have not been ...
Blood Sampling in Testudinidae and Chelidae.

Visceral colouration of Eupemphix nattereri (Anura: Leiuperidae): effects of NDP-α-melanocyte stimulating hormone
(Italian Journal of Zoology, 2013-08-02) [Artigo]
Amphibians have melanin-containing cells in visceral organs that are similar to pigmentary cells from the epidermis. Both of them are derived from the ectodermal neural crest. Epidermal cells respond to α-melanocyte ...
Differentiation of Leydig Cells in the Mongolian Gerbil
(Microscopy Research and Technique, 2010-02-01) [Artigo]
Information on postnatal Leydig cell (LC) differentiation in the Mongolian gerbil has been unavailable. Therefore, current investigation was designed to examine LC lineage differentiation in this rodent, from birth to ...
Cystic spermatogenesis in three species of the prolixus complex (Hemiptera: Triatominae)
(Italian Journal Of Zoology, 2015-04-03) [Artigo]
The reproductive biology of triatomines and, more specifically, the general aspects of spermatogenesis and spermiogenesis are well known. However, reported structural analyses of the testicles are restricted to the genus ...

Microscopic Evidences That Bone Marrow Mononuclear Cell Treatment Improves Sciatic Nerve Regeneration After Neurorrhaphy
(Microscopy Research and Technique, 2011-04-01) [Artigo]
Cell therapy constitutes a possibility for improving nerve regeneration, increasing the success of nerve repair. We evaluate the use of mononuclear cells in the regeneration of the sciatic nerve after axotomy followed by ...
Diversity of bats in three areas of north west São Paulo, Brazil

Distinct localization of T cell Agrin during antigen presentation - evidence for the expression of Agrin receptor(s) in antigen-presenting cells
(FEBS Journal, 2012-07-01) [Artigo]
Agrin is over-expressed by activated and autoimmune T cells, and synergizes with the T cell receptor (TCR) to augment cell activation. In the present study, we show that Agrin accumulates to distinct areas of the plasma ...
