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 ...
Maternal obesity disturbs the postnatal development of gonocytes in the rat without impairment of testis structure at prepubertal age
(Reproduction, 2013-12-01) [Artigo]
In this study, we evaluated whether maternal obesity (MO) affects testis development and gonocyte differentiation in the rat from 0.5 to 14.5 postnatal days. Male Wistar rats were used at 0.5, 4.5, 7.5, and 14.5 days post ...
Neonatal Gonocyte Differentiation in Mongolian Gerbil Meriones unguiculatus Involves Asynchronous Maturation of Seminiferous Cords and Rapid Formation of Transitional Cell Stage
(Anatomical Record-advances In Integrative Anatomy and Evolutionary Biology, 2010-02-01) [Artigo]
This study describes the neonatal differentiation of the Mongolian gerbil gonocytes, focusing on the relationship between its relocation to the basement membrane, apoptosis and postrelocation changes and also the distribution ...
Histopathological alterations in the prostates of Mongolian gerbils exposed to a high-fat diet and di-n-butyl phthalate individually or in combination
(Reproductive Toxicology, 2015-04-01) [Artigo]
Both high-fat diet and exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals have been implicated in susceptibility to pathological prostate lesions, but the consequences of combining the two have not yet been examined. We evaluated ...
Sexual maturation of the Mongolian gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus): a histological, hormonal and spermatic evaluation
(Reproduction, Fertility and Development, 2014) [Artigo]
This study determined the phases of sexual development of the male Mongolian gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus) based on an integrative analysis of testicular morphology, hormonal data and sperm parameters. Male gerbils were ...
