Supplementation with vitamin C and N-acetyl-cysteine increases oxidative stress in humans after an acute muscle injury induced by eccentric exercise.
There has been no investigation to determine if the widely used over-the-counter, water-soluble antioxidants vitamin C and N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) could act as pro-oxidants in humans duringExpand

Acute kidney injury in patients with severe sepsis in Finnish Intensive Care Units
Severe sepsis is one of the leading causes of acute kidney injury (AKI). Patients with sepsis‐associated AKI demonstrate high‐hospital mortality. We evaluated the incidence of severeExpand

The relationship between electrical resistance of vaginal mucus and plasma hormonal parameters during periestrus in sows
Sixteen crossbred multiparous sows displaying estrus on Day 5 or 6 after weaning were used in this study. Jugular veins of sows were cannulated on Day 13 of the estrous cycle. Electrical resistanceExpand

Expression of orexins and their precursor in the porcine ovary and the influence of orexins on ovarian steroidogenesis in pigs.
Orexins A and B are hypothalamic neuropeptides associated with homeostasis and the reproductive system. The aim of the study was to compare the expression of the prepro-orexin gene and the intensityExpand

Adiponectin Expression in the Porcine Ovary during the Oestrous Cycle and Its Effect on Ovarian Steroidogenesis
Adiponectin is an adipose-secreted hormone that regulates energy homeostasis and is also involved in the control of the reproductive system. The goal of the present study was to investigate changesExpand

The physiological role of beta-endorphin in porcine ovarian follicles.
Beta-endorphin-like immunoreactivity (beta-END-LI) was measured by radioimmunoassay in porcine ovarian follicular fluid (FF) from small, medium and large follicles throughout the oestrous cycle. TheExpand

Activin-A, but not inhibin, regulates 17β-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 activity and expression in cultured rat granulosa cells
17beta-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (17HSD type 1) catalyzes the reduction of estrone (E(1)) to biologically more active estradiol (E(2)). In the present study, the effect of activin, inhibin,Expand

The regulation of steroidogenesis by opioid peptides in porcine theca cells.
The present study was designed to investigate basal and LH-induced steroidogenesis in porcine theca cells from large follicles in response to various concentrations (1-1000 nM) of mu opioid receptorExpand

Localization of orexin A and orexin B in the porcine uterus.
The presence of orexins and their receptors in gonads indicate that these hormones participate in the control of reproductive functions. The aim of the study was to compare the expression of theExpand

Expression of adiponectin and adiponectin receptors 1 (AdipoR1) and 2 (AdipoR2) in the porcine uterus during the oestrous cycle.
Adiponectin is a hormone secreted primarily by white adipose tissue. Recent studies have shown that adiponectin and its receptors (AdipoR1 and AdipoR2) are expressed in different reproductiveExpand
