Effects of ibuprofen (a non-selective COX inhibitor) on the embryonic development, hatching success, larval growth, behavioral pattern and survival competence were studied in Danio rerio. Embryos at 2/4 celled stage were exposed to graded doses (0, 1, 5, 10, 50 and 100μg/L distilled water) of ibuprofen in triplicate sets (n=30). The experiment was repeated(More)
Loss of muscular strength is a well-known component of the clinical picture many endocrine diseases and is often their predominant aspect. It has recently been proved that the cytoplasmatic receptors for steroid hormones (SH) are artefacts of the fixation techniques and that they are attached to the internal surface of the cell membrane. Our experiment was(More)
The medical, agricultural and scientific interest of the muscular tissue is well established in the literature. Its formation and function are essential for survival. It is also known that steroid hormones are involved in the growth, development and maturation of skeletal muscles (sexual hormones) as well as in the process of body adjustment to the stress(More)
This paper reports on an experiment concerning the involvement of catecholamines in the biosynthesis of nucleic acids and proteins at muscular levels, using various types of skeletal muscles (psoas, diaphragm, soleus) and heart muscles from male Wistar rats treated with adrenalin. Assessment of the biosynthetic processes was made by the uptake level of 3H(More)
The mechanisms involved in the atherogenesis process and the connection of the latter with stress were studied, by trying to elucidate the difference in the response of the two sexes to the causative factors. To this purpose, the role of the sex hormones (testosterone, estradiol, progesterone) and glucocorticoids (hydrocortisone hemisuccinate) in 3H(More)
