Molecular characterization and regulation of the angiotensin-converting enzyme type 2/Angiotensin-(1-7)/MAS receptor axis during the ovulation process in cattle
TLDR
The Ang-(1-7), MAS receptor, ACE2, NEP and PEP profiles in preovulatory follicles indicate that Ang-( 1-7) plays a role in the regulation of the ovulatory process in cattle. Expand
The effect of equine chorionic gonadotropin on follicular size, luteal volume, circulating progesterone concentrations, and pregnancy rates in anestrous beef cows treated with a novel fixed-time
TLDR
It is concluded that eCG given 2 days before progestin removal in this FTAI protocol for anestrous beef cows increased diameter of the dominant follicle, luteal volume, serum P4 concentrations, and pregnancy rates. Expand
Prenatal Androgenization of Ewes as a Model of Hirsutism in Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
TLDR
It is indicated for the first time, to the authors' knowledge, that changes in wool fiber diameter observed in PA ewes replicate, at the translational level, the increase in hair diameter in hirsute women with PCOS. Expand
Butaphosphan and cyanocobalamin: effects on the aspiration of oocytes and in vitro embryo production in Jersey cows
TLDR
In conclusion, successive butaphosphan and cyanocobalamin administrations can potentially increase IVP and quality in Jersey cows during a OPU protocol. Expand
Insulin treatment does not affect follicular development but alters granulosa cell gene expression in dairy cows.
TLDR
Insulin treatment does not increase follicle growth and estradiol secretion in dairy cows, but decreases IGFBP2 and tends to increase pappalysin (PAPPA) mRNA abundance in granulosa cells, suggesting a positive effect on follicle development. Expand
