Early postnatal ethanol exposure induces fluctuation in the expression of BDNF mRNA in the developing rat hippocampus.
Effects of early postnatal ethanol exposure on brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) mRNA expression in the rat hippocampus were investigated. Wistar rats were assigned to either ethanol treatmentExpand

Application of the physical disector to the central nervous system: Estimation of the total number of neurons in subdivisions of the rat hippocampus
Stereology is a group of mathematical and statistical methods that allows the extrapolation of three-dimensional structural information from two-dimensional sections (or slices). This allowsExpand

Direct effects of diethylstilbestrol on the gene expression of the cholesterol side-chain cleavage enzyme (P450scc) in testicular Leydig cells.
AIMS To investigate the precise mechanisms underlying the action of estrogenic endocrine disruptors, we evaluated the direct effects of synthetic estrogen diethylstilbestrol (DES) on steroidogenesisExpand

Effects of exposure to clothianidin on the reproductive system of male quails.
Clothianidin (CTD) is a neonicotinoid developed in the 1990s as an insecticide having selective toxicity, but it was later found to cause reproductive abnormalities in rats through oxidative stress.Expand

Migration of erythroblastic islands toward the sinusoid as erythroid maturation proceeds in rat bone marrow.
It has been hitherto considered that mature erythroblasts migrate toward the sinusoid along the cytoplasmic processes of macrophages of erythroblastic islands in bone marrow. Our previous report,Expand

Oligodendrocyte myelin glycoprotein (OMgp) in rat hippocampus is depleted by chronic ethanol consumption
The hippocampal formation has been shown to be particularly vulnerable to the neurotoxic effects of chronic ethanol consumption. It was hypothesized that this damage was due to the disruption of theExpand

Ethanol neurotoxicity and dentate gyrus development
ABSTRACT  Maternal alcohol ingestion during pregnancy adversely affects the developing fetus, often leading to fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS). One of the most severe consequences of FAS is brain damageExpand

No apoptotic cell death of erythroid cells of erythroblastic islands in bone marrow of healthy rats.
A possibility of apoptotic cell death in erythropoietic regulation was examined by means of detailed light microscopical histoplanimetry, electron microscopy, the in situ nick-end labeling method,Expand

Fetal and neonatal exposure to three typical environmental chemicals with different mechanisms of action: mixed exposure to phenol, phthalate, and dioxin cancels the effects of sole exposure on mouse
A major question is whether exposure to mixtures of low-dose endocrine disruptors (EDs) having different action mechanisms affects neurodevelopment differently than exposure to EDs individually. WeExpand

Neonatal repetitive maternal separation causes long-lasting alterations in various neurotrophic factor expression in the cerebral cortex of rats.
AIMS This study was carried out to examine the effects of early postnatal maternal separation stress on the development of the cerebral cortex with respect to time-dependent fluctuations ofExpand
