Objectives of the study were to determine developmental changes in morphology and expression of androgen receptor (AR) and estrogen receptor (ER)a in the body of the rat penis exposed neonatally to diethylstilbestrol (DES). Male pups received DES at a dose of 10 mg per rat on alternate days from Postnatal Day 2 to Postnatal Day 12. Controls received olive(More)
Hypogonadism is a major manifestation of zinc deficiency in both humans and animals. In this study, we try to elucidate the main role of zinc in regulating the testicular function. Ninety male weanling albino rats were divided into three groups: control, zinc-deficient (ZD), and zinc-supplemented (ZS) groups. Six rats from each group were sacrificed every(More)
Baculovirus (Autographa californica nuclear polyhedrosis)-expressed bovine herpesvirus-1 (BHV-1) glycoproteins B (gB), gC, and gD were developed and characterized. The recombinant proteins retained their antigenic properties as determined by immunoblotting against monoclonal antibodies. The proteins were examined as antigens for detection of BHV-1 infection(More)
Induced zinc deficiency in male albino rats caused a great reduction in the testicular levels of testosterone as compared to control and zinc-supplemented (ZS) rats. Estimation of the testicular levels of follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone and prolactin (PRL) in the zinc-deficient (ZD) rats showed higher levels in comparison with both control(More)
This study was concerned with the investigation of acute pharmacological responses (pharmacodynamics) including analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects of ketorolac tromethamine fast dissolving tablets prepared by direct compression method using 3% croscarmellose sodium as a superdisintegrant by applying tail flick test and carragenan induced rat paw edema(More)
This study was undertaken in an attempt to further understand the relationship between adenosine and H+ ion. Using Langendorff hearts from male rabbits, the perfusion fluid pH was lowered from 7.4 to 7.1 and 6.8 with CO2. A 31 and 86% increase in coronary flow with a simultaneous increase in the release of adenosine by 61 and 128% was observed at pH 7.1 and(More)
