  • Journal of reproduction and fertility
  • 1 March 1981
The oestrous cycle of the spiny mouse (Acomys cahirinus), as determined by vaginal smears, is 11.1 +/- 1.9 (s.d.) days (n = 110). The vaginal smears show cell patterns similar to those seen in theExpand

Fertility of sperm from t/+ mice: evidence that +-bearing sperm are dysfunctional.
Male mice carrying one complete t haplotype transmit it to virtually all offspring. This implies that either the sperm carrying the t haplotype have an advantage in fertilization, or that the spermExpand

Effects of seminal vesicle removal on fertility and uterine sperm motility in the house mouse.
The relative significance of the accessory glands of the male reproductive tract in fertility is unclear. To clarify the role of the seminal vesicles, fertility and uterine sperm motility wereExpand

The reproductive tract of the male spiny mouse (Acomys cahirinus) and coagulation studies with other species.
The testes of the spiny mice showed asymmetry, the left being significantly heavier than the right (P = 0.025). Histological studies indicated that spermatozoa were first present in the testes ofExpand

  • Physiological Zoology
  • 1 July 1978
Total body water (TBW) and the biological half-life of water (t-½) were estimated by the tritiated water dilution technique using both plasma and urine samples. Values for t-½ did not depend on theExpand

Inhibition of complement-mediated cytotoxicity of antisera by fluid secreted by the seminal vesicle of the house mouse.
The fluid from the seminal vesicles of the house mouse inhibited complement-mediated cytotoxicity of antisera against both sperm and lymphocytes. This inhibition was not reduced by heating or byExpand

Development of the adult pelage in normal and hormone-injected spiny mice (Acomys cahirinus).
The dorsal pelage of the adult Egyptian spiny mouse (Acomys cahirinus) consists primarily of coarse brittle spines which differ from those of the juvenile pelage. The development of the adult pelageExpand

Changes in urinary phosphatase activity during the menstrual cycle.
Alkaline phosphatase (Alk P-ase) activity of human urine has been correlated to various diseases but a specific correlation to a given disease has not been obtained. Renal malformations neoplasticExpand
