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)
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)
