Bisphenol A (BPA) is a monomer of polycarbonate plastics that has estrogenic activities and has been shown to be a substrate for multidrug resistant efflux mechanisms, specifically, P-glycoprotein. Since the natural hormone estrogen reverses multidrug resistance in some cell types, we hypothesized that BPA might have a similar activity in trophoblasts. We(More)
During follicular development in mammalian ovaries, the majority of follicles undergo atresia. One of the characteristics of this process is apoptotic cell death in granulosa cells. Several death ligands and receptors, including Fas ligand (FasL) and Fas, have been detected in ovarian follicles and also demonstrated to be capable of inducing apoptosis in(More)
Infectious bronchitis virus (IBV), the causative agent of infectious bronchitis, results in respiratory disease, nephritis, and poor egg production and quality in chicken. Antimicrobial peptides possess potent antimicrobial activities and are regarded as promising therapeutic alternatives in the fight against microorganisms. To assess the in vitro antiviral(More)
Deproteinization has been recognized as a prerequisite for amino acid analysis of plasma samples. For plasma stored at room temperature, delaying deproteinization for 30, 60 or 120 minutes did not result in significant changes in the mean CV (coefficient of variation), which ranged from 4.4 to 5.6%. However the mean CV of aspartic acid, α-aminoadipic acid,(More)
