In this study the in vivo effects of estradiol in regulating Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase function in rat heart was studied. Adult male Wistar rats were treated with estradiol (40μg/kg, i.p.) and after 24h the animals were sacrificed and the heart excised. Following estradiol administration, cardiac Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase activity, expression of the α1 subunit, and(More)
Lymphotoxin-β receptor (LTβR) axis plays a crucial role in development and compartmentalization of peripheral lymphatic organs. But, it is also required for the appropriate function and maintenance of structural integrity of the thymus: in LTβR-deficient animals the clonal deletion of autoreactive lymphocytes is impaired and differentiation of thymic(More)
Apatura ilia (Denis and Schiffermüller, 1775) and A. iris (Linnaeus, 1758) are fascinating butterflies found in the Palaearctic ecozone (excepting the north of Africa). The wings of these insects are covered with a great number of two types of scales positioned like roof tiles. Type I scales are on the surface, while type II scales are situated below them.(More)
The modern concept of the development of atherosclerosis implies that the underlying pathogenesis of this disease is vascular remodeling as a response of the vessel wall to hypertension associated with hyperlipidemia and subsequent inflammation. However, even though this disease has been investigated for decades, both from a basic and clinical research(More)
INTRODUCTION The goal of this study was to show early and midterm results of surgical treatment of cardiac neoplasma. METHODS Between 2000. and 2008., sixty-seven patients with a cardiac tumor or a subdiaphragmatic neoplasma with right atrial extension were operated in our institution. In 22 patients (32.8%), not only a simple extirpation of neoplasma,(More)
In humans uric acid (UA) is the end product of degradation of purines. The handling of UA by the renal system is a complex process which is not fully understood. To date, several urate transporters in the renal proximal tubule have been identified. Among them, urate transporter 1 (URAT1) and a glucose transporter 9 (GLUT9) are considered of greater(More)
We studied the in vivo effects of estradiol on size and biochemical parameters of cardiomyocytes in pathophysiological conditions such as obesity and insulin resistance. Male Wistar rats were normally fed (controls, n = 7) or fed with high-fat diet (obese, n = 14). Half of the obese rats (obese + estradiol, n = 7) were treated with a single dose of(More)
We have already shown that metallophilic macrophages, which represent an important component in the thymus physiology, are lacking in lymphotoxin-β receptor-deficient mice. However, further molecular requirements for the development and correct tissue positioning of these cells are unknown. To this end, we studied a panel of mice deficient in different(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate in vivo effects of estradiol on Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase activity/expression in high fat (HF) diet fed rats. Adult male Wistar rats were fed normally (Control, n = 7) or with a HF diet (Obese, n = 14) for 10 weeks. After 10 weeks, half of the obese rats were treated with estradiol (Obese + Estradiol, n = 7, 40 μg/kg, i.p.)(More)
INTRODUCTION Angiogenesis is the growth of both new vascular and lymphatic blood vessels from the existing vasculature. During this process, blood endothelial cells (BECs) and lymphatic endothelial cells (LECs) express specific markers, which help their discrimination and easier identification. Since the coronary thrombi material aspirated from patients(More)
