The aim of this study was to determine a possible relationship between whole-body 900-MHz Global System for Mobile Communication-like electromagnetic field (GSM-EMF) exposure and pathological changes in vital organs of Sprague–Dawley rats. Twenty adult male rats were used in four equal independent groups—control (without EMF) and low-, moderate-, and(More)
Calotropis procera is a medicinal plant used traditionally in animal and human medicine for its digestive and anti-asthmatic effects. In the present study, antioxidant activity and mineral element contents of the leaves and flowers of C. procera were determined. Different extraction methods that include ethanol, chloroform, and water extraction were used to(More)
OBJECTIVE Scutellaria luteo-caerulea Bornm. & Snit. is one of the species of genus Scutellaria, within the family of the Lamiaceae, that is used for immune system stimulation and antibacterial effects in traditional medicine in Iran. The aims of this study were to analyze essential oils and mineral element contents of leaves of S. luteo-caerulea in(More)
OBJECTIVES Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. Although psoriasis is clinically and histologically well characterized, its pathogenesis is unknown in detail. The aims of this study were to evaluate the proteome of psoriatic patients' sera and to compare them with those of normal healthy human to find valuable biomarkers. MATERIALS(More)
Cyanide is one of the most toxic substances present in a wide variety of food materials consumed by man and animals. Rhodanese is a sulfur transferase that catalyses the conversion of cyanide to thiocyanate, hence cyanide detoxification. In this study, the enzyme levels and distribution of rhodanese in different tissues of rabbit was investigated. The(More)
The use of electromagnetic field (EMF) generating apparatuses such as cell phones is increasing, and has caused an interest in the investigations of its effects on human health. We analyzed proteome in preparations from the whole testis in adult male Sprague-Dawley rats that were exposed to 900 MHz EMF radiation for 1, 2, or 4 h/day for 30 consecutive days,(More)
This work analyzes the effects of radiofrequency-electromagnetic field (RF-EMF) exposure on the reproductive system of male rats, assessed by measuring circulating levels of FSH, LH, inhibin B, activin B, prolactin, and testosterone. Twenty adult male Sprague-Dawley rats (180 ± 10 g) were exposed to 900 MHz RF-EMF in four equal separated groups. The(More)
3-Iodothyronamine (T1AM) is an endogenous metabolite of thyroid hormone with noticeable metabolic and neurological effects. Alteration of feeding behaviour by this compound was different at various doses in experimental models and it is not clear whether this effect is partially accounted by changes in neuropeptide secretion. In this study, we attempted to(More)
Although cell phones have been used worldwide, some adverse and toxic effects were reported for this communication technology apparatus. To analyze in vivo effects of exposure to radiofrequency-electromagnetic field (RF-EMF) on protein expression in rat testicular proteome, 20 Sprague-Dawley rats were exposed to 900 MHz RF-EMF for 0, 1, 2, or 4 h/day for 30(More)
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a chronic autoimmune disease that involves different organs. Its most important feature is the production of specific autoantibodies against nuclear or cytoplasmic antigens. Proteomic analysis of serum, as one of the most readily available body fluids, can be used as a method for clarifying the pathogenesis of SLE. In(More)
