The correlation between serum levels of pituitary and thyroid hormones and the activity of two antioxidant enzymes (AOE), catalase (CAT) and superoxide dismutase (SOD), in different immune and nonimmune organs of young and old rats was investigated. Serum levels of growth hormone (GH), prolactin (Prl), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), luteinizing hormone(More)
Microtheca semilaevis Stal is a phythophagous insect associated to Brassicaceae, and frequently occurs with other species of beetles, such as Microtheca ochroloma Stal. Despite its importance to organic farmers, there is no information in the Brazilian literature about its natural enemies. Stiretrus decastigmus (Herrich-Schaeffer) was first found and here(More)
In this paper, we discuss the impact of a rain forest canopy on the statistical characteristics of atmospheric turbulence. This issue is of particular interest for understanding on how the Amazon terrestrial biosphere interact with the atmosphere. For this, we used a probability density function model of velocity and temperature differences based on(More)
In order to assess the possible involvement of endocrine factors and antioxidant enzymes (AOE) in the mammary pathology typically observed in old female rats, we undertook to determine the relationship between pituitary hormones, AOE activity, and histopathological changes in the mammary gland of senescent rats carrying neoplastic and nonneoplastic mammary(More)
