Differentiation of human podocytes starts with mesenchymal-to-epithelial transition (MET) of the metanephric mesenchyme into the S-shaped nephrons. During further development, differentiating podocytes regain mesenchyme-like cell characteristics by epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT), leading to formation of the terminally differentiated,(More)
We have investigated the long term effects of insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) on the fatty acid profile of tissues in aging rats. For this purpose, a rat model for IDDM was established by streptozotocin application. The rats were randomly divided into four groups of 8 animals each: CON 6 (control group sacrificed after 6 months of the(More)
Mikulec: Effects of early castration on production performance, serum lipids, fatty acid profile and desaturation indexes in male chicken broilers fed a diet with increased fat content. abSTracT This paper analyses the effect of early caponisation, at 18 days, on the production performance, lipid metabolism and fatty acid profile of fattening broilers fed(More)
This paper describes research into concentration of total proteins and individual protein fractions in the blood serum of Ross broiler chickens during fattening period. Blood for analysis was taken at the 14 th , 28 th and 42 nd days of age by wing vein puncture. Concentration of total serum proteins was detected by spectrophotometry. Electrophoresis on(More)
performance, serum lipids and fatty acid profile of different tissues in chicken broilers fed a diet supplemented with linseed oil during a prolonged fattening period. ABSTRACT The influence of enriching the diet of chicken with 5% of linseed oil as a vegetable source of n3 fatty acids in the form of linolenic acid on the accumulation of n3 long chain(More)
The activity of calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II alpha (CaMKIIα) may play a critical role in the modulation of nociceptor activity and plasticity of primary sensory trigeminal neurons. The aim of this study was to investigate the immunoreactivity of phosphorylated CaMKIIα (pCaMKIIα) in subpopulations of trigeminal ganglion (TG) neurons in rat(More)
In our previous work we examined the mechanism of action of the new tremorogenic substance verruculogen isolated by Cole and coworkers. Examining the effect of various substances with known mechanisms of action on verruculogen-induced tremor, we concluded that this tremor was probably related to decrease of GABA levels in CNS. In order to further define the(More)
ABSTrAcT The levels of biochemical parameters in the blood serum of Simmental service bulls were studied. The research was conducted on twelve bulls at the age of four to seven. The blood was taken on four occasions by needle biopsy from the vena jugularis externa. In the samples of blood serum, the activities were specified of alanine aminotransferase(More)
