Effects of acute cold exposure on rectal temperature, blood glucose and plasma free fatty acids in alloxan-diabetic rats
(Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology A: Physiology, 1986-12-01) [Artigo]
These experiments were carried out to study the effects of acute cold exposure (0-2°C/4 hr) on rectal temperature, blood glucose and plasma free fatty acids (FFA) in alloxan-diabetic rats. Male Wistar rats weighing 170-190 ...
ACAO DO CAPTOPRIL SOBRE O EDEMA PULMONAR AGUDO ADRENALINICO
(Revista de Ciencias Farmaceuticas, 1991-12-01) [Artigo]
Plasma lipid profile of experimentally induced hyperlipidemic New Zealand white rabbits is not affected by resveratrol
(Journal of Applied Research, 2009-08-12) [Artigo]
Hyperlipidemia is well recognized as an important risk factor in the development of atherosclerosis. Low-density lipoproteins (LDL) are components of cholesterol that are highly associated to an increased risk of cardiovascular ...
Localization of peroxidase activity in blood mononuclear phagocytes in pacu fish (Piaractus mesopotamicus)
(Journal of Submicroscopic Cytology and Pathology, 2002-10-01) [Artigo]
The localization of peroxidase activity in different cell regions is used as a criterion for classifying the stage of maturity of mammalian mononuclear phagocytes, with a positive peroxidase reaction indicating the presence ...
Morphology of the vas deferens of the budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus)
(Journal of Submicroscopic Cytology and Pathology, 2003-01-01) [Artigo]
A morphological study of the budgerigar vas deferens was conducted to demonstrate the electron-microscopic features of its epithelial lining. The analysis showed that the vas deferens of the budgerigar was found to be of ...
Observations on the development of the febrile response to pyrogen in newborn pigs
(Biology of the Neonate, 1985-12-01) [Artigo]
The febrile response of newborn pigs to exogenous pyrogen injection was investigated. Lipopolysacharides (LPS, E coli) were injected intravenously into the superior vena cava of 1-30-day-old piglets. All the experiments ...
Morphology of oesophagus and crop of the partrigde Rhynchotus rufescens (Tiramidae)
(Acta Scientiarum: Biological Sciences, 2006-04-01) [Artigo]
Twenty adult partridges Rhynchotus rufescens were used to study the morphology of oesophagus and crop. Materials to the morphologic study were collected and lengths of the oesophagus and of the crop were measured. For ...
Role of brain nitric oxide in the cardiovascular control of bullfrogs
(Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology - A Molecular and Integrative Physiology, 2013-06-01) [Artigo]
The goal of the present study was to determine if nitric oxide (NO) acting on the brain of bullfrog (Lithobates catesbeianus) is involved in arterial pressure and heart rate (HR) control by influencing sympathetic activity. ...
Keratinase production by new strain of Bacillus Amyloliquefaciens: Application of statistical experimental design for optimization of keratinase production
(Asian Journal of Microbiology, Biotechnology and Environmental Sciences, 2012-12-17) [Artigo]
Feathers are rich in amino acids and can be employed as a dietary protein supplement for animal feed. Microbial degradation is an alternative technology for improving the nutritional value of feathers. Other potential ...
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 ...
