Besides oocytes, the follicular fluid contains granulosa, thecal, and ovarian surface epithelial cells, and both granulosa and thecal cells are well-characterized. However, epithelial cells in(More)
Premature ovarian failure and insufficiency are significant long-term side-effects of chemotherapy for female cancer patients.

OBJECTIVES One of the major side effects of radiotherapy for treatments of the head and neck cancer is the radiation-induced dysfunction of salivary glands. The aim of the present study is to investigate the efficacy of deferoxamine (DFO) to restore the secretory function of radiation-damaged salivary glands in mice. METHODS DFO (50 mg/kg/d) was(More)
Pituitary adenylyl cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) can mediate growth hormone and gonadotropin release in teleost pituitary via PACAP receptors. In this study, the full-length cDNAs encoding PACAP and PACAP-related peptide (PRP) and the PACAP-specific receptor (PAC1-R) were cloned from the brain of darkbarbel catfish Pelteobagrus vachelli. The(More)
