A 7-month-old Korat cat was referred for a slowly progressive neurological disease. Circulating monocytes and lymphocytes showed the presence of single or multiple empty vacuoles and blood leukocytes enzyme assay revealed a very low beta-galactosidase activity level (4.7 nmol/mg per h) as compared to unaffected parents and relatives.

BACKGROUND The endocrinology of skeletal muscle is highly complex and many issues about hormone action in skeletal muscle are still unresolved. Aim of the work is to improve our knowledge on the relationship between skeletal muscle and 17β-estradiol. METHODS The skeletal muscle cell line C2C12 was treated with 17β-estradiol, the oxytocin peptide and a(More)
Regucalcin (RGN) is a mammalian Ca2+-binding protein that plays an important role in intracellular Ca2+ homeostasis. Recently, RGN has been identified as a target gene for sex steroid hormones in the prostate glands and testis of rats and humans, but no studies have focused on RGN expression in bovine tissues. Thus, in the present study, we examined RGN(More)
