Regulation of ovarian steroidogenesis in vitro by recombinant human insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and bovine insulin (b-insulin) was investigated in intact follicles and isolated follicular cells of carp, Cyprinus carpio at vitellogenic stage of oocyte maturation. In intact follicles, IGF-I and b-insulin stimulated testosterone and 17beta-estradiol(More)
The effects of salmon calcitonin (sCT) on the secretion of 17beta-estradiol (E(2)) were examined in female common carp, Cyprinus carpio. Vitellogenic stage fish adapted to high-Ca water were i.p. injected with vehicle, sCT, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), or hCG plus sCT. To determine whether ovarian follicles are equipped with CT receptors, a CT(More)
Multiple signal transduction pathways mediating gonadotropin-induced testosterone and 17β-estradiol (E(2)) production were identified in carp ovarian theca and granulosa cells in short-term co-incubation. Inhibitors of voltage-sensitive calcium channels (VSCCs) and calmodulin attenuated human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG)-induced steroid production, whereas(More)
Previously, we observed that in vitro germinal vesicle breakdown (GVBD) in Cyprinus carpio oocytes was induced by recombinant human insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and bovine insulin (b-insulin) and this induction was steroid-independent. To investigate further the early signal transduction components involved in this process, the possible role of(More)
In mouse uterus, at the late diestrus stage LH binding sites have previously been described. The aim of our study was to confirm the existence of LH receptor (Lhr (Lhcgr)) mRNA and its protein in mouse endometrium. Endometrium at all stages of the estrous cycle contained Lhr mRNA, essentially identical to that found in mouse ovary. Endometrium also(More)
Automatic prediction of continuous level emotional state requires selection of suitable affective features to develop a regression system based on supervised machine learning. This paper investigates the performance of low-level dynamic features for predicting two common dimensions of emotional state, namely, valence and arousal instantaneously.(More)
Bio-Electronic devices establish interference between the Human Brain with Computers using bio-signals, which are sensed by a special type of sensors known as bio-sensors. Study of bio-signals are an emerging area of research gives special attention to Mind controlled gadgets. This research article presents Mind Controlled Vehicle (MCV) based on Brain(More)
It has been a common practice to use various antiseptics, disinfectants and sterilizing agents in clinical and household practices. Antiseptic draping and dressings are prerequisites before every surgical procedure barring a very selected few. However the important question is what is the sensitivity of one of the most common pathogen staphylococcus aureus(More)
Previously, we observed that in vitro steroidogenesis in intact ovarian follicles of common carp Cyprinus carpio can alone be induced by recombinant human insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I) and bovine insulin (b-insulin) and this induction was gonadotropin-independent. To investigate early signal transduction components involved in this process, the(More)
Fully grown fish and amphibian oocytes exposed to a maturation-inducing steroid (MIS) activates multiple signal transduction pathways, leading to formation and activation of maturation-promoting factor (MPF) and induction of germinal vesicle breakdown (GVBD). The present study was to investigate if phosphatidylinositol 3 kinase (PI3 kinase) and(More)
