The effects of nest incubation temperature on embryos and hatchlings of the loggerhead sea turtle: Implications of sex difference for survival rates during early life stages
Abstract In sea turtles, higher hatch and emergence successes, larger body size of hatchlings, and superior terrestrial and swimming locomotor performances are important to maximize survival rates.Expand

Immunoneutralization of inhibin and estradiol during the follicular phase of the estrous cycle in cows.
To investigate the physiological importance of inhibin and estradiol in the regulation of FSH secretion during the follicular phase of the estrous-cycle in cows, animals were passively immunizedExpand

Roles of inhibin and estradiol in the regulation of follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone secretion during the estrous cycle of the rat.
The relative contributions of inhibin and estradiol in the regulation of FSH and LH secretion were examined at various stages of the estrous cycle in the rat. At 1100 h on metestrus, diestrus, orExpand

Gold nanoparticle‐adjuvanted S protein induces a strong antigen‐specific IgG response against severe acute respiratory syndrome‐related coronavirus infection, but fails to induce protective
The spike (S) protein of coronavirus, which binds to cellular receptors and mediates membrane fusion for cell entry, is a candidate vaccine target for blocking coronavirus infection. However, someExpand

TGF-β alters collagen XII and XIV mRNA levels in cultured equine tenocytes
Abstract The effects of TGF-β1, β2 and β3 (TGF-β) on levels of mRNA corresponding to the α chains of type XII and type XIV collagens in equine tenocyte cultures were assessed using the ribonucleaseExpand

Mechanical strain increases expression of type XII collagen in murine osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 cells.
In adult mouse, the mRNA corresponding to the alpha1 chain of type XII collagen (alpha 1(XII)) is predominantly detected in the bone. Additionally, murine osteoblastic cells, MC3T3-E1, increased theExpand

Threshold dose of piperonyl butoxide that induces reactive oxygen species-mediated hepatocarcinogenesis in rats
To determine the threshold dose of piperonyl butoxide (PBO) that induces hepatocellular tumor-promoting effects, reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation, and drug-metabolizing enzymes that protectExpand

Sex Differences and the Heritability of Scute Pattern Abnormalities in the Green Sea Turtle from the Ogasawara Archipelago, Japan
Although scute pattern abnormalities in sea turtle species are considered to be strongly correlated with survival rate, there is little information available regarding these abnormalities and theExpand

Chronic treatment with estrogen up-regulates expression of sst2 messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) but down-regulates expression of sst5 mRNA in rat pituitaries.
We previously showed that 17beta-estradiol (E2) induces the somatostatin (SRIF) responsiveness of the rat anterior pituitary, which leads to inhibition of PRL secretion through E2-dependent SRIFExpand

Estradiol transcriptionally and posttranscriptionally up-regulates thyrotropin-releasing hormone receptor messenger ribonucleic acid in rat pituitary cells.
17 beta-Estradiol (E2) has been shown to up-regulate the binding activity of the TRH receptor in rat pituitary cells. In this report, we investigated whether and how E2 alters TRH receptor expressionExpand
