Sodium intake, brain c-Fos protein and gastric emptying in cell-dehydrated rats treated with methysergide into the lateral parabrachial nucleus
(Physiology & Behavior, 2015-11-01) [Artigo]
Previous studies from our laboratory have shown that methysergide, a serotonergic antagonist, injected into the lateral parabrachial nucleus (LPBN) combined with a pre-load of 2 M NaCl, given by gavage, induces 0.3 M NaCl ...
Genetic polymorphism of Streptococcus mutans in Brazilian family members
(Brazilian Journal of Microbiology, 2003-07-01) [Artigo]
O objetivo deste estudo foi determinar, através da técnica de reação em cadeia da polimerase com primers arbitrários (AP-PCR) a capacidade de diferenciar clones geneticamente distintos de Streptococcus mutans e estabelecer ...
Blood clot stabilization on root dentin conditioned by the combination of tetracycline and EDTA
(Brazilian Journal of Oral Sciences, 2014-04-01) [Artigo]
AIM: To assess the combined use of tetracycline (TTC) and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) on clot formation, considering that EDTA may neutralize TTC acidity. METHODS: Planed human tooth roots were treated with ...
HLA-G polymorphism and breast cancer
(International Journal of Immunogenetics, 2014-04-01) [Artigo]
The aim of this study was to explore a possible influence of the HLA-G coding polymorphisms on the susceptibility to breast cancer development in Brazilian subjects; however, none of the HLA-G variation sites evaluated was ...
Evaluation of argyrophilic nucleolar organizer regions in oral tumor progression
(Micron (oxford, England : 1993), 2002) [Artigo]
The aim of this study was to compare the presence of nucleolar organizer regions (NORs) in normal oral mucosa, dysplasia and microinvasive carcinoma. All histological specimens were reviewed according to the modified ...

Role of serotonergic 5-HT1A and oxytocinergic receptors of the lateral septal area in sodium intake regulation
(Behavioural Brain Research, 2010-06-19) [Artigo]
Several reports have revealed a high density of 5-HT1A receptors in the lateral septal area (LSA), as well as a subpopulation of oxytocin (OT) receptors. Increasing evidence shows that 5-HT1A and OT neurons inhibit sodium ...
