Abnormal sperm production and reduced fertility have been reported in transgenic male mice lacking the alpha-subtype of the estrogen receptor (ER)alpha or aromatase. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of estrogen in male reproductive function, by determining the effect of estradiol on testicular function in hypogonadal (hpg) mice congenitally(More)
Spectral measurements of ultraviolet-B radiation made at Toronto since 1989 indicate that the intensity of light at wavelengths near 300 nanometers has increased by 35 percent per year in winter and 7 percent per year in summer. The wavelength dependence of these trends indicates that the increase is caused by the downward trend in total ozone that was(More)
BACKGROUND Testicular development is arrested in the hypogonadal (hpg) mouse due to a congenital deficiency in hypothalamic gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) synthesis. Chronic treatment of male hpg mice with estradiol induces FSH synthesis and secretion, and causes testicular maturation and qualitatively normal spermatogenesis. As estradiol negative(More)
Despite its very large territory and the best Landsat archive in the world, Canada has made very limited use of Landsat data for land cover mapping. The primary difficulty has been the prohibitive cost of information extraction and the earlier (and now overcome for Landsat-7 enhanced thematic mapper plus data) high cost of data purchase. The solution to(More)
Testicular development is arrested in the hypogonadal (hpg) mouse due to a congenital deficiency of hypothalamic gonadotropin-releasing hormone synthesis. Previous studies have demonstrated that chronic treatment of these mice with estradiol induces testicular maturation and qualitatively normal spermatogenesis, but it is not known whether these are direct(More)
Testicular weight and morphology, serum gonadotropins, intratesticular levels of testosterone and ABP levels in testicular interstitial fluid were studied in adult rats at intervals of 1 to 70 days after a single oral dose of 650 mg/kg methoxy acetic acid. At 3 days, this treatment resulted in the selective loss or depletion of pachytene and later(More)
