A plethora of protein kinase C (PKC) isoforms play important roles in regulating synaptic plasticity and neurotransmitter release. Even though, most PKC isoforms are involved in Pb-induced neuronal toxicity, its mechanism is still unclear. The current study addresses the effect of Pb on PKC isoforms in different regions of the developing rat brain.(More)
Administration of androgen to mice induces kidney beta-glucuronidase. Measuring beta-glucuronidase activity, rate of beta-glucuronidase synthesis, beta-glucuronidase mRNA activity and beta-glucuronidase mRNA concentration, the time course of induction was compared using a strong androgen, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), and a weakly androgenic progestin,(More)
Renal ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) activity was evaluated in normal female, male, testosterone-treated female and androgen-insensitive Tfm/Y mice for its heat sensitivity and in vivo half-life. ODC activity in normal female kidney consisted of 2 forms which differed in their heat sensitivity at 46 degrees C. Androgens, either endogenous in normal males or(More)
This paper is designed to give an overview of the mechanism of androgen action and some of the factors that can affect it. The discussion of androgen action includes androgen transport in the blood, metabolism, receptor binding, nuclear activation and selected aspects of biological response. The importance of recognizing interspecies and interstrain(More)
