Prolactin and growth hormone stimulation of lactation in mice requires thyroid hormones.
This experiment tested the hypothesis that thyroid hormones are essential for a milk production response to growth hormone (GH) and prolactin (PRL). Prior to breeding, female transgenic miceExpand

Inhibin-B as a test of ovarian reserve for infertile women.
The objective of the study was to compare a standard clomiphene citrate challenge test with inhibin-B serum concentrations also obtained on cycle days 3 and 10 as a negative predictor of pregnancy inExpand

Effects of thyroid hormone on embryonic oligodendrocyte precursor cell development in vivo and in vitro.
The oligodendrocyte precursor cell divides a limited number of times before terminal differentiation. The timing of differentiation depends on both intracellular mechanisms and extracellular signals,Expand

Ethanol disrupts and decreases the regulated body temperature differentially in C57BL/6J and DBA/2J mice.
Two inbred mouse strains, C57BL/6J (B6) and DBA/2J (D2), were evaluated for effects of ethanol on thermoregulation. Continuous recording of core temperature (Tc) from undisturbed animals at anExpand

Effects of perinatal thyroid hormone deprivation on the growth and behaviour of newborn mice.
Experiments were designed to distinguish between neonatal effects due to maternal thyroxine (T4) deprivation and those due to autonomous (fetus/pup) T4 deprivation, employing mice heterozygous forExpand

Control of fecundity through abortion in Epilobium montanum L.
SummaryPlants of the inbreeding perennial herb Epilobium montanum L. were defoliated at two stages in development and the formation and abortion of flower buds, flowers, copsules and ovules wasExpand

Ganciclovir-induced ablation non-proliferating thyrocytes expressing herpesvirus thymidine kinase occurs by p53-independent apoptosis.
In adult mice of the transgenic strain TG66.19, in which expression of herpes simplex type 1 virus thymidine kinase (HSVI-TK) is driven in thyrocytes from the thyroglobulin promoter, the drugExpand

Consequences of thyroid hormone deficiency induced by the specific ablation of thyroid follicle cells in adult transgenic mice.
The herpes simplex type 1 virus thymidine kinase (HSV1-TK) reporter gene was coupled to a bovine thyroglobulin promoter (TG-tk construct). Within the thyroid glands of transgenic mice expression wasExpand

Effects of thyroid hormone deficiency on mice selected for increased and decreased body weight and fatness.
A study was undertaken to test whether the elimination of metabolic pathways strongly involved in growth and fatness, comprising thyroid hormones (TH) and growth hormone (GH), is responsible for aExpand

The effect of nonsteroidal agents (NSAIDs) on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of metolazone.
NSAIDs attenuate the natriuretic response to loop diuretics. Their effect on the action of distal tubular diuretics is poorly explored. Accordingly, the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics ofExpand
