Physical exercise increases both tissue needs for oxygen and cellular respiration and causes an overproduction of free radicals. When free radical generation exceeds the cell's antioxidant capacity tissue-damage develops due to oxidative stress. Therefore, it appears important to increase the scavenger ability of the tissues. Controlled training and dietary(More)
BACKGROUND The applications of proteomic strategies to ovine medicine remain limited. The definition of serum proteome may be a good tool to identify useful protein biomarkers for recognising sub-clinical conditions and overt disease in sheep. Findings from bovine species are often directly translated for use in ovine medicine. In order to characterize(More)
Lipid composition of membranes is fundamental to modulate signaling pathways relying on lipid metabolites and/or membrane proteins, thus resulting in the regulation of important cell processes such as apoptosis. In this case, membrane remodeling is an early event important for the activation of signaling leading to cell death and removal of apoptotic cells.(More)
The purpose of this study was to delineate the pattern of sympathetic innervation in the suprasesamoidean region of the deep digital flexor tendon (DDFT) in horses using immunohistochemical staining (IHC) for tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and alpha-1 adrenergic receptor (α1-AR). Fourteen forelimbs were collected from 10 horses. Longitudinal sections of the(More)
