15-deoxy-Delta 12,14-prostaglandin J2 induces apoptosis of human hepatic myofibroblasts. A pathway involving oxidative stress independently of peroxisome-proliferator-activated receptors.
Hepatic myofibroblasts (hMFs) play a key role in the development of liver fibrosis associated with chronic liver diseases. Apoptosis of these cells is emerging as a key process in the resolution ofExpand

Hormonal regulation of apoptosis in rabbit granulosa cells in vitro: evaluation by flow cytometric detection of plasma membrane phosphatidylserine externalization.
Annexin V and propidium iodide bivariate analysis and the TUNEL method were used to quantify hormonal regulation of apoptosis in rabbit granulosa cells from preovulatory follicles in vitro. The aimExpand

Pattern analysis of Wechsler Intelligence Scale for children-revised profiles of delinquent boys.
To help meet the prescriptive needs of juvenile delinquents more effectively, an analysis of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R), utilizing Lutey's model of Factor AnalyticExpand

Involvement of theca cells and steroids in the regulation of granulosa cell apoptosis in rabbit preovulatory follicles.
Follicular atresia is characterized by a rapid loss of granulosa cells and, to a lesser extent, theca cells, via apoptosis. The aim of this study was to investigate the possible involvement of thecaExpand

Progesterone secretion and proliferation in cultured rabbit granulosa cells under conditions of beta-D-xyloside-induced inhibition of proteoglycan synthesis.
Proteoglycans present in follicular fluid are synthesized by granulosa cells under gonadotropin control. An inhibitor of proteoglycan synthesis, p-nitrophenyl-beta-D-xyloside (beta-D-xyloside) wasExpand

Evidence for peptidergic innervation of the endocrine optic gland inSepia by neurons showing FMRFamide-like immunoreactivity
The innervation of the endocrine optic gland of Sepia, which controls sexual maturation, was studied by immunocytochemistry. Anti-FMRFamide (Phe-Met-Arg-Phe-NH2) serum revealed immunoreactive neuronsExpand

Angiotensin II modulates steroidogenesis in granulosa and theca in the rabbit ovary: its possible involvement in atresia.
Accumulating evidence has shown the ovary of mammals to contain an intrinsic renin-angiotensin system that has been ascribed an autocrine-paracrine role. The present study in the female rabbit ovaryExpand

Stimulation by hCG of ovarian inactive renin synthesis in rabbit preovulatory theca cells.
The origin of ovarian renin and its regulation by hCG were investigated in rabbit periovulatory follicles and cultured preovulatory follicular cells. Intracellular content of renin in thecal cellsExpand

Luteotrophic factors in hyperstimulated pseudopregnant rabbit: I--Evidence for aromatase activity in luteal tissue and luteal cells.
It is well established that the rabbit corpus luteum (CL) function depends upon endogenous oestradiol, the major source of which in the rabbit ovary is considered to be the ovarian follicles. TheExpand

Inhibition by gonadotropins of interleukin-1 production by rabbit granulosa and theca cells: effects on gonadotropin-induced progesterone production.
Increasing evidence suggests that cytokines may play a role in ovarian processes. The purpose of this study was to determine if interleukin-1 (IL-1) could modulate rabbit pre-ovulatory follicularExpand
