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)
BACKGROUND Diabetes mellitus (DM) influences the trigeminal nerve function by changing the pain response and transduction of the orofacial sensory pathways. It affects the inflammatory response via neuropeptide Y (NPY) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which could potentially have a relevant role in the pathophysiology of diabetic neuropathy.(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)
Neurons and glia arise from neural progenitor cells that express nestin. Although substantial changes in neuronal development were observed during the postnatal period, data concerning dynamics of nestin expression in the superior cervical ganglia (SCG) of rat during that period are lacking. It is known that gonadectomy and steroid hormones influence the(More)
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a metabolic disorder associated with serious liver complications. As a metabolic chronic disease, DM is very common in the elderly. Recent studies suggest ameliorating effects of vitamin D on metabolic and oxidative stress in the liver tissue in an experimental model of DM. The aim of this study was to investigate the expression of(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)
Gonadal hormones have a significant influence on both the number of neurons and the density of synapses in the superior cervical ganglion (SCG) during the early postnatal period. There are no studies reporting influence of the absence of these factors in sexually mature animals, although changes in SCG-neurons of the rat were observed up to 6 months of age.(More)
