We examined the presence of hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) in mammary glands of virgin, pregnant (12, 20, and 21 days), and lactating (1 and 4 days postpartum) rats. Immunohistochemistry with antibody against rat HSL revealed positive HSL in the cytoplasm of both alveolar epithelial cells and adipocytes. In virgin rats, immunoreactive HSL was observed in(More)
The profiles of plasma leptin levels in pregnant and lactating rats and their offspring were determined. The plasma leptin levels increased on days 12 and 20 of gestation and declined on day 21 of gestation, remaining at this level during lactation. These changes were similar for lumbar adipose tissue weight, and a significant correlation was found when(More)
The scavenger receptors CLA-1/SR-BI and CD36 interact with native and modified lipoproteins and with some anionic phospholipids. In addition, CD36 binds/transports long-chain free fatty acids. Recent biochemical evidences indicates that the rabbit CLA-1/SR-BI receptor can be detected in enterocytes, and previous studies showed the presence of mRNA for both(More)
Hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) is a key regulator of cholesterol esters metabolism. The aim of this study was to determine HSL localization in rat female reproductive organs during the ovarian cycle by IHC methods. HSL was located in the ovarian epithelium. The granulosa cells and oocytes of primordial follicles were immunonegative. In mature follicles, HSL(More)

The aim of the present work was to determine the effects of liver growth factor (LGF) on the regeneration process of rat testes after chemical castration induced by ethane dimethanesulfonate (EDS) by analyzing some of the most relevant proteins involved in cholesterol metabolism, such as hormone sensitive lipase (HSL), 3β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase(More)
There is a tight relationship between fertility and changes in cholesterol metabolism during spermatogenesis. In the testis, class B scavenger receptors (SR-B) SR-BI, SR-BII, and LIMP II mediate the selective uptake of cholesterol esters from HDL, which are hydrolyzed to unesterified cholesterol by hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL). HSL is critical because HSL(More)
