In the present work we studied, in female chronic diabetic rats the effect of either the parenteral administration of tamoxifen (TAM) (500 micrograms.kg-1.day-1) for 15 days or the ovariectomy upon the respiration and oscillatory behaviour of intact mitochondria and the activities of 3-hydroxybutyrate dehydrogenase (HBD) and cytochrome c oxidase (Cox) of(More)
The present work measured brown adipose tissue and heart mitochondrial oxygen consumption in hypothyroid rats treated with replacement doses of T3, T4 or T4 plus iopanoic acid and kept at 4 degrees C for 24 h. Heart oxygen consumption in normal, untreated hypothyroid and T4-treated hypothyroid rats was unaffected by cold exposure. In rats treated with T4(More)
In the present work, the effect "in vivo' of increasing doses of RU 38486 upon the hepatic mitochondrial function of diabetic rats has been studied. At the same time, the action of adrenalectomy and corticosterone restitution on this function were comparatively demonstrated. The parameters measured were oxygen consumption with the substrates:(More)
