We examined the effect of green tea consumption on glial fibriliary acidic protein (GFAP) expression in spinal cord of streptozotocin (STZ) treated rats. Three groups (n = 10) were used in this study: (i) controls; (ii) STZ-induced diabetic rats given tap water; and (iii) an STZ-induced diabetic group given green tea. Immunohistochemistry showed a(More)

Approximately 15% of couples in the reproductive age group worldwide are affected by infertility, and it is estimated that about 40-50% of infertilities are of male origin. Genetic factor accounts for 10-15%(More)
This study was designed to shed more light onto the three different brainstem regions which are implicated in the pain pathway for the level of various excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters before and following neuronal stimulation. The in vivo microdialysis technique was used in awake, freely moving adult Sprague-Dawley rats. The neurotransmitters(More)
The mdm2 gene encodes several protein isoforms with different molecular weights (p90, p80, p76 and p57). MDM2 p90 (usually considered to be the major MDM2 protein) binds to and inactivates P53. We have recently shown that growth inhibition of MCF-7 human breast cancer cells by progesterone is associated with P53 down-regulation. In this work, we analyzed(More)
