17 beta-Hydroxysteroid oxidoreductase in the human testis was investigated histochemically using tissues obtained from seven patients with undescended testis or varicocele at the time of orchiopexy or high ligation of spermatic vein. Formazan precipitates were formed from nitro-blue tetrazolium in the tissue utilizing hydrogen released by oxidation of(More)
Parathyroid cysts were produced in rats by excessive doses of dihydrotachysterol. (DHT) and calcium acetate. Although overdoses of each DHT, calcium or their combination are believed to suppress the activity of the parathyroid cell, the present electron microscopic observation showed signs of enhanced protein synthesis and secretion of the cells in all(More)
The present report investigated steroidogenesis in vitro in testis tissues obtained from two boys aged 8 months and 4 years with ambiguous external genitalia and male vagina, and a 4-year-old body with true precocious puberty. Histologically, testes of the former two boys are still immature and the testis of the last one contains differentiated Sertoli(More)
The kidney plays an important role in gluconeogenesis during starvation. To clarify the anti-diabetic action of angiotensin receptor blockers, we examined the effects of telmisartan on the sodium-glucose co-transporters (SGLT) and the pathways of renal gluconeogenesis in streptozotocin-induced diabetes mellitus (DM) rats. At 4 weeks, the DM rats treated(More)
Albumin endocytosis is enhanced in the podocytes of minimal change nephrotic syndrome. We investigated that the endocytic vesicle transport in the podocyte using three-dimensional observation in a rat model of puromycin aminonucleoside (PAN)-induced nephrotic syndrome. At day 7, Evans Blue-labeled albumin was intravenously injected in PAN rats, and one(More)
