AIM To assess the effect of 17β-estradiol pretreatment on the function and expression of α2- adrenergic receptors (ARs) subtypes in late pregnancy in rats. METHODS Sprague-Dawley rats (n=37) were treated with 17β-estradiol for 4 days starting from the 18th day of pregnancy. The myometrial expression of the α2-AR subtypes was determined by real time(More)
Thirteen mammalian aquaporin (AQP) water channels are known, and few of them play a role in the mammalian reproductive system. In our earlier study, the predominance of AQP5 in the late-pregnant rat uterus was proven. Our current aim was to investigate the effect of estrogen- and gestagen-related compounds on the expression of the AQP5 channel in the(More)
Recent data suggest that elevated serum semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase activity (SSAO) may cause endothelial injury. Formation of cytotoxic metabolites (especially formaldehyde) and increased oxidative stress might lead to initiation or progression of atherosclerosis. Effective and selective inhibitors of human SSAO might exert cytoprotective effect(More)
