Doxorubicin (DXR) has been used in variety of human malignancies for decades. Despite its efficacy in cancer, clinical usage is limited because of its cardiotoxicity, which has been associated with oxidative stress and apoptosis. Carbon monoxide-releasing molecules (CORMs) have been shown to reduce the oxidative damage and apoptosis. The present study(More)
OBJECTIVES It has been recently reported that blockade of type 1 cannabinoid (CB1) receptors by specific antagonists or genetic manipulation alleviates dyslipidaemia, hyperglycaemia and insulin resistance in animal models of obesity and type 2 diabetes. However, the precise role of adipokines in the insulin-sensitising effects of the CB1 antagonist(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4) is an adipocyte-secreted hormone proposed to link obesity with insulin resistance. However, the role of RBP4 in cardiovascular complications is yet to be fully understood. The present study is aimed to decipher the association between RBP4 with pro-inflammatory cytokines and low-density lipoprotein(More)
AIM Aim of the study was to study the relative gene expression of genes associated with fatty acid synthesis at 60 days postpartum (pp) in bovine mammary epithelial cells (MECs) of Surti and Jafarabadi buffaloes. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 10 healthy Surti and Jafarabadi buffaloes of each breed were selected at random from Livestock Research(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the effects of two different classes of drugs in sephadex-induced lung inflammation using rats and explore the potential mechanism (s). MATERIALS AND METHODS Effects of dexamethasone (0.3 mg/kg, p.o.) and rosiglitazone (10 mg/kg, p.o.) treatments were evaluated up to 3 days in sephadex challenged rats. 72 h postsephadex administration,(More)
