BACKGROUND Effects of rosiglitazone in the prevention of adhesion formation were evaluated. METHODS Eighty Wistar albino rats were randomly grouped into eight equally sized groups. A 2-cm segment of the antimesenteric surface of the right uterine horn was traumatized to form a standardized lesion, using bipolar cautery. A dose-response study was performed(More)
For determination of the oestrous cycle in rats classical Papanicolaou technique has long been used successfully. Instead of using many stains in Papanicolaou, staining the vaginal secretions with only methylene blue has also been defined. Recently a new technique in which vaginal samples are directly examined under light microscope has been introduced. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the effects of linezolid in prevention of adhesion formation in a rat uterine horn model. DESIGN Prospective randomized study. SETTING University Experimental Animal Research Laboratory Center. SAMPLE Ninety female Wistar albino rats. METHODS A dose response study was first conducted with 60 Wistar albino rats that were randomly(More)
Members of the bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) superfamily are expressed in the testis and epididymis and are believed to have different biological functions during testicular and epididymal development. Smad1 is one of the signal transducers of BMP signaling and binds to several proteins involved in ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS). Valosin-containing(More)
BACKGROUND The ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS) is a key player in regulating many cellular processes via proteasomal degradation of ubiquitinated proteins. Recently published data show that Jab1/CSN5 interacts with p97/VCP and controls the ubiquitination status of proteins bound to p97/VCP in mouse and human cells. However, coexpression of p97/VCP and(More)
The objective of this study was to choose a suitable anesthetic combination for use in experimental surgical models by comparing the anesthetic and cardio-respiratory changes. Fourteen healthy male sheep were randomly assigned to two different drug regimens. In Group 1 the sheep were anesthetized with ketamine + xylazine (22 mg/kg im. + 0.2 mg/kg i.m.,(More)
