The activity of five adrenocortical steroidogenic enzymes, 3 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase/isomerase (3 beta-HSD), 17-hydroxylase (17-OHase) 17,20 desmolase (17,20D), 21-hydroxylase (21-OHase) and 11-hydroxylase (11-OHase), were measured in vitro in purified mitochondria or microsomes from rhesus monkey (Macaca mulata) and human adrenal tissue in the(More)
The in vitro inhibition of Leydig cell microsomal steroidogenesis by ketoconazole, a potent P-450 dependent enzyme blocker, was evaluated in the human, stallion and pig. Purified Leydig cells were isolated by mechanical dispersion of teased, decapsulated whole testes and sieving through a 0.25 mm stainless steel mesh. The activity of 3 beta-hydroxysteroid(More)
The hypothesis was tested that carotid baroreflex gain is increased after 20% hemorrhage. The baroreceptor reflex responses to changes in carotid sinus pressure (CSP) were measured in control, 20% hemorrhage, and reinfusion conditions in three experimental groups: conscious intact (n = 7), anesthetized intact (n = 8), and anesthetized vagotomized (n = 8)(More)
BACKGROUND Cervical spinal cord injury (SCI) models in rats have become increasingly useful because of their translational potential. The goal of this study was to design, develop and validate a quick and reliable forelimb locomotor rating scale for adult rats with unilateral cervical SCI injury. NEW METHOD Adult female rats were subjected to a C5(More)
Individually, motor training, pharmacological interventions, and housing animals in an enriched environment (EE) following spinal cord injury (SCI) result in limited functional improvement but, when combined, may enhance motor function. Here, we tested amphetamine (AMPH)-enhanced skilled motor training following a unilateral C3-C4 contusion injury on the(More)
