The prostate is fundamental to the male reproductive process, and the stroma-epithelium interaction has an important role in prostate maintenance. Studies suggest that dystroglycan (DG) plays a role in cancer development in various organs. Thus, the aims of this work were to characterize morphological and proliferative features of the prostatic stroma and(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of two different oxygen (O(2)) concentrations on survival and development of preantral follicles of goats cultured in vitro. Preantral ovarian follicles (> or =150 microm) were isolated from ovarian cortex fragments of goats and individually cultured for 30 days under two different O(2) concentrations(More)
The effect of exposure to cryoprotectant and cryopreservation of goat and sheep ovarian cortical fragments on the morphology of primordial follicles, stromal cell density and follicular development was performed. Goat and sheep ovarian fragments were exposed to 1.0 or 1.5M ethylene glycol (EG) for 5, 10 or 20min, followed or not by conventional(More)
We investigated the effects of Lutzomyia longipalpis salivary glands homogenate of wild-caught and laboratory-reared vectors on the lesion evolution and immunomodulation of the infection caused by Leishmania (Leishmania) amazonensis. To compare the effect of both salivary glands homogenate (SGH), C57BL/6 mice were inoculated subcutaneously into the hind(More)
