This study aims to determine the effects of maternal protein and energy malnutrition during lactation on the linear growth, body weight and onset of puberty of the female offspring. At parturition, dams were randomly assigned to the following groups: (C) control group, with free access to a standard laboratory diet containing 23% protein; (PR)(More)
OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to evaluate if maternal malnutrition during lactation could possibly program folliculogenesis, the ovarian expression of gonadotropins, leptin, and their receptors. METHODS At parturition, dams were randomly assigned to a control group (C), with free access to a standard laboratory diet containing 23% protein, and a(More)
OBJECTIVE We sought to evaluate the effects of telmisartan, sitagliptin, or their combination on pancreatic ultrastructural alterations in high-fat-fed C57BL/6 mice. METHODS Three-month-old C57BL/6 mice were fed with standard chow (SC, 10% lipids) or high-fat diet (HF, 60% lipids) during 10 weeks to induce obesity and its comorbidities. After this period,(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the effects of a prolonged use of organic and transgenic soy upon the lipid profile and the collagen/muscle ratio of the detrusor muscle of the bladder. METHODS Wistar rats were fed three different diets from weaning until sacrifice (15 months old): control group (CG) casein-based diet; organic soy group(More)
Both protein-energy and energy-restricted diets during lactation program the ovarian function of the rat offspring, leading to a reduction of folliculogenesis, possibly as the consequence of the altered expression of leptin and its isoform receptor genes.
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of maternal protein and energy-restricted diets during lactation in folliculogenesis and its relations to androgen and estrogen receptors in the offspring at puberty. METHODS At parturition, dams were randomly assigned to a control (C) group, with free access to a standard laboratory diet(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether maternal malnutrition during lactation programs ovarian folliculogenesis and the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and its receptors KDR, Flt-1, and FGFR. DESIGN Experimental study. SETTING University-based research laboratory. ANIMAL(S) Adult female rats(More)
