An overexpression of cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) on the surface of endothelial cells is one of the first steps in a high glucose-mediated endothelial dysfunction in diabetic patients. The effect of insulin administration in the condition of elevated glucose concentration on the E-selectin, intracellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) and vascular adhesion(More)
Reported interstitial pressures range from -8 to +6 mm Hg in different tissues and from <-20 mm Hg in burned tissue or more than +30 mm Hg in tumors. We have tried to link interstitial pressure to the here proposed cyclical changes in the fluid transport across the capillary wall. In the presented model interstitial pressure is considered as an average of(More)
Trefoil factor family peptides (TFF1, TFF2, and TFF3) are predominantly found in mucous epithelia of various organs. However, they have also been reported in the nervous tissue, particularly mouse, rat, porcine, and human brain. The aim of this research was to determine the presence of TFF1 and TFF3 in the nervous system of developing mouse embryo. Mouse(More)
AIM To analyze neural tissue differentiation in a unique, chemically-defined in vitro culture model of gastrulating rat embryo proper by use of transmission electron microscopy (TEM), proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) expression, and in vivo transplantation after a 2-week culture in serum-free or serum-supplemented media. Influence of protein-free(More)
The fibroblast growth factor's (FGF) influence on the growth and differentiation of 8- and 9- day-old rat foetus has been studied, whereas foetuses were grown in an in vitro culture model. Proliferation was analysed by the expression of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA). It was established that the usage of FGF in the first period of the culture(More)
Transferrin is a plasma protein with the primary role of transporting iron through the body and delivering it to the cells that utilize it. Because free ionic iron is very toxic by creating free radicals, the importance of transferrin lies in its antioxidant properties. Atherosclerosis, a pathological process affecting arterial walls, is a chronic(More)
Trefoil factor family 3 (Tff3) peptide is present during intrauterine endochondral ossification in mice, and its deficiency affects cancellous bone quality in secondary ossification centers of mouse tibiae. The aim of this study was to quantitatively analyze parameters describing the growth plate and primary ossification centers in tibiae of 1-month-old(More)
Different experimental systems are used to study developmental processes in mammals. In this study, three experimental models were analysed and correlated: (1) cultivation of rat embryos in vitro; (2) cultivation in vitro and then transplantation in vivo; (3) direct transplantation in vivo. When embryos were cultivated in vitro and then transplanted in(More)
The long-term stationary culture of postimplanatation embryos without extraembryonic membranes is a method to assess their developmental potential in vitro. The method was almost exclusively used on rat embryos, while mouse embryos were considered unsuitable due to their poor differentiation. In present study the postimplantation mouse embryos were used to(More)
