BACKGROUND Cystic ovarian disease is an important cause of infertility that affects bovine, ovine, caprine and porcine species and even human beings. Alterations in the ovarian micro-environment of females with follicular cysts could alter the normal processes of proliferation and programmed cell death in ovarian cells. Thus, our objective was to evaluate(More)
Cystic ovarian disease (COD) is an important cause of abnormal estrous behavior and infertility in dairy cows. COD is mainly observed in high-yielding dairy cows during the first months post-partum, a period of high stress. We have previously reported that, in lower mammals, stress induces a cystic condition similar to the polycystic ovary syndrome in(More)
Suboptimal intake of Zinc (Zn) is one of the most common worldwide nutritional problems. The aim of this study is to provide new evidence on the relation between moderate Zn restriction, and cytoprotective functions in airway epithelium. We analyzed the effect of moderate Zn deficiency (ZD) on the expression of several pro and anti-apoptotic proteins and(More)
In the study, the gene expression of several heat shock proteins (HSPs) was determined in normal follicles and cystic follicles from cattle. A lower expression of HSP10 and HSP40 was observed in granulosa and theca cells of cysts compared to normal follicles. HSP27 was significantly less expressed in granulosa cells in cystic and large antral follicles than(More)
