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 ...
Chromatoid body: Remnants of nucleolar proteins during spermatogenesis in triatomine (Heteroptera, Triatominae)
(Micron, 2012-09-01) [Artigo]
In this study, we analyzed fibrillarin nucleolar protein expression in CBs of spermatogenic cells from testicular follicles of Triatoma sordida and Triatoma infestans. In the structural and ultrastructural analysis, it was ...
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 ...
RECK-Mediated Inhibition of Glioma Migration and Invasion
(Journal of Cellular Biochemistry, 2010-05-01) [Artigo]
RECK is an anti-tumoral gene whose activity has been associated with its inhibitory effects regulating MMP-2, MMP-9, and MT1-MMP. RECK level decreases as gliobastoma progresses, varying from less invasive grade II gliomas ...
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 ...
