This study evaluated the influence of precocious exposure to hypergravity on the expression of myosin heavy chain (MHC) protein isoforms in nape, masticatory and respiratory developmental rat muscles. Pregnant females were maintained at 1.8 g from the 11th day of gestation to the 7th day after birth. The 7-day-old rats were used for muscle sampling.(More)
This study evaluated the influence of Lurcher mutation, characterized by degeneration of cerebellar Purkinje cells, granule cells, and inferior olive neurons, on cardiac and skeletal muscles: one respiratory (diaphragm, Dia), three masticatory (anterior temporalis, AT; masseter superficialis, MS and anterior digastric, AD), one hind limb (soleus, S), entire(More)
OBJECTIVES AND DESIGN The present study aimed at a broad genome expression analysis of rat skin and draining lymph nodes affected with allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). METHODS ACD was elicited in sensitized SD rats with 0.5% 2,4-dinitrofluorobenzene on skin areas distant from the sensitization sites. Involved skin and lymph nodes were dissected 8 and 24(More)
Weanling male wistar rats were fed 4 weeks a standard diet and separated into 2 groups, which received a high fat diet (50% w fat; HFD) or a low fat diet (3% w fat; LFD). These diets were fed 6-8 weeks and the animals then separated into light and heavy animals in each group. T4 deiodination in liver homogenates was investigated in all groups and compared(More)

The influence of agonist (dexamethasone) and antagonist (mifepristone) of glucocorticoïd receptor during controllable painless stress was evaluated on myosin heavy chains expression in three masticatory and two nape rat muscles: anterior digastric (AD), anterior temporalis (AT), masseter superficialis (MS), longissimus capitis (L) and rectus capitis(More)
To determine whether the genospecies composition of Lyme disease spirochetes is spatially stratified, we collected questing Ixodes ricinus ticks in neighboring plots where rodents, birds, and lizards were present as reservoir host and compared the prevalence of various genospecies. The overall prevalence of spirochetes in questing ticks varied across the(More)
The effect of a high-fat diet on the diameter, volume, triglyceride content and number of the adipocytes was studied in male Wistar rats at the age of 9 weeks and 6 months, respectively. The adipocytes were isolated by means of the method of RODBELL. The adipocyte diameters were measured using the microscopic method. The weight and the fat content of the(More)
