Background. We previously found that expression of SET gene was up-regulated in polycystic ovaries by using microarray. It suggested that SET may be an attractive candidate regulator involved in the pathophysiology of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). In this study, expression and cellular localization of SET protein were investigated in human polycystic(More)
Physiological and endocrine studies on sexual development in animals and effects of acupuncture on sexual development are limited. Therefore, we investigated the effect of electro-acupuncture (EA) on the arcuate nucleus (Arc) and release of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) in animals at different developmental stages. In Experiment 1, EA stimulation(More)
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is an important regulator of reproductive axis, which mainly plays some roles in regulating secretion of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) in hypothalamus. In previous studies, we found that the repeated low frequency electro-acupuncture (EA) down-regulated hypothalamus-pituitary-gonad (HPG) axis of common rats and rabbits during(More)
