Changes in testicular morphology and steroidogenesis in adult rats exposed to Atrazine.
Atrazine is an herbicide considered as a potent endocrine disruptor, causing adverse effects on both gender of mammalian and non-mammalian species. Despite the known adverse effects of Atrazine,Expand

Estrogen and its receptors in efferent ductules and epididymis.
Estrogens play key roles in the development and maintenance of male reproductive function and fertility. In this review, we briefly describe the localization and function of estrogen receptors ESR1Expand

Effects of the herbicide Roundup on the epididymal region of drakes Anas platyrhynchos.
Exposure to the Roundup has been shown to affect StAR protein and aromatase expression and activity, pointing out that this herbicide may cause adverse effects in animal reproduction by affectingExpand

5alpha-Androstane-3beta,17beta-diol (3beta-diol), an estrogenic metabolite of 5alpha-dihydrotestosterone, is a potent modulator of estrogen receptor ERbeta expression in the ventral prostrate of
Prostate is one of the major targets for dihydrotestosterone (DHT), however this gland is also recognized as a nonclassical target for estrogen as it expresses both types of estrogen receptors (ER),Expand

Differential expression and seasonal variation on aquaporins 1 and 9 in the male genital system of big fruit-eating bat Artibeus lituratus.
Efferent ductules and epididymis are involved in water and solute transport, which is indispensable for storage and maintenance of the sperm viability. The reabsorption process involves proteins suchExpand

Distribution of estrogen receptors (ERalpha and ERbeta) and androgen receptor in the testis of big fruit-eating bat Artibeus lituratus is cell- and stage-specific and increases during gonadal
The testis is a classical target for androgens, especially testosterone, acting via androgen receptor (AR). Alternatively, androgens can be aromatized to produce estrogens which act via specificExpand

Expression of different classes of immunoglobulin in intraepithelial plasma cells of the Harderian gland of domestic ducks Anas platyrhynchos.
The Harderian gland of chickens contains numerous plasma cells and is considered as a peripheral lymphoid organ. Data about this gland in other avian species are scarce or inexistent. ConsideringExpand

Effects of 3-beta-diol, an androgen metabolite with intrinsic estrogen-like effects, in modulating the aquaporin-9 expression in the rat efferent ductules
BackgroundFluid homeostasis is critical for normal function of the male reproductive tract and aquaporins (AQP) play an important role in maintenance of this water and ion balance. Several AQPs haveExpand

Comparative expression of androgen receptor in the testis and epididymal region of roosters (Gallus domesticus) and drakes (Anas platyrhynchos).
The androgen receptor (AR) mediates the physiological actions of androgens, which play a crucial role in the maintenance of male reproductive function and fertility. Although the AR distributionExpand
