Inter-individual differences in brain-immune interactions have been demonstrated previously in mice using lateralization as a behavioral trait of population heterogeneity. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS), which is known to induce neurochemical, neuroendocrine, and immune responses depending on lateralization, is also able to induce sickness behavior, via the(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of milking frequency on the phagocytosis and respiratory burst activity of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) and monocytes of primiparous and multiparous cows under 2 nutritional management regimens during early lactation. At calving, 12 primiparous and 12 multiparous cows were randomly assigned to(More)
The hormonal regulation of gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase (gamma-GTP), an enzyme marker of Sertoli cells, was studied in immature rats that received 50 micrograms/day of testosterone propionate (TP) during 6 days to suppress pituitary LH and FSH. Suppression of LH was monitored indirectly by the determination of intratesticular levels of testosterone and(More)
An androgen binding activity with characteristics similar to ABP is present in a particulate fraction (105,000 g pellet) obtained by differential centrifugation of seminiferous tubules, impure Sertoli cells and impure germ cells homogenates. Purification of germ cells through albumin gradients, results in almost a complete loss of androgen binding activity(More)
