The role of angiotensin-converting enzyme in the rat epididymis.
TLDR
The intraluminal ACE was protected from the circulating captopril by the blood-epididymis barrier and could not have been derived from the testicular fluid or spermatozoa since the rete testis fluid and sperm contained little AII.
A preliminary evaluation of antifertility activity of a triterpenoid glycoside (DSS) from Dalbergia saxatilis in female Wistar rats.
TLDR
DSS, isolated from the root of Dalbergia saxatilis, did not significantly alter the fertility of rats at the first and second trimesters of pregnancy but did cause a significant decrease in the mean Day 20 foetal crown-rump length when administered at the premating period and at the third trimester of pregnancy.
Studies on the renin-angiotensin system in primary monolayer cell cultures of the rat epididymis.
TLDR
Renin-like activity, demonstrated indirectly by radioimmunoassay of generated AI at a near-neutral pH of 6.0, was demonstrated in the cell lysate but was almost undetectable in the serum-free cell culture medium, suggesting that renin expression in epididymal cells is an intracellular phenomenon.
Antifertility activity of aqueous ethanolic leaf extract of Spondias mombin (Anacardiaceae) in rats.
TLDR
Aqueous ethanol leaf extract of S. mombin has significant anticonceptive activity attributed to a direct action of the extract on the uterus as judged by the number of pregnant animals at the end of the third trimester of pregnancy.
A New And Simple Method Of Confirmatory Detection Of Mating In Albino Rats ( Rattus norvegicus )
TLDR
This new method is simple, easy to apply and does not interfere with fertilization and pregnancy, and also does not involve either the use of specially designed rat cages or microscopy of vaginal smears, which were the constraints of the former methods of confirming mating in rats.
In Vivo Trypanocidal activity of Hydroethanolic extract of Hymenocardia acida stem bark in Rats
TLDR
In vivo potential of hydroethanolic extract of H. acida in the treatment of African trypanosomosis is shown and the extract reduced the level of parasitaemia and prolonged the life span of infected rats.
Effect of aqueous ethanolic extract of Hymenocardia acida stem bark on oestrous cycle of albino rats
TLDR
It is concluded that the aqueous ethanolic extract of Hymenocardia acida stem bark caused an irregular oestrous cycle characterised by prolonged diestrus phase in female albino rats.
Antispermatogenic effects of aqueous ethanolic extract of Hymenocardia acida stem bark in Wistar rats
TLDR
Oral administration of aqueous ethanolic extract of Hymenocardia acida stem bark for eight weeks caused a significant reduction in the weights of testes, epididymides, ventral prostrate, seminal vesicles and vasa differentia compared to the control, which adversely affected spermatogenesis in Wistar rats.
Serum luteinising hormone, testosterone and total cholesterol levels, libido and testicular histomorphology of male West African Dwarf goats orally or subcutaneously treated with monosodium
TLDR
MSG administration for up to 14 and 28 days led to a significant lowering of serum luteinising hormone, testosterone and cholesterol, as well as libido scores, which were significantly lower than that of the control group.
