In mammals, the pool of primordial follicles at birth is determinant for female fertility. Exposure to IR during oogonia proliferation and the diplotene stages of ovarian development induced the virtual disappearance of primordial follicles in the postnatal ovary, while half the follicular reserve remained present after irradiation during the(More)
The fetal and neonatal development of male germ cells (gonocytes) is a poorly understood but crucial process for establishing fertility. In rodents, gonocytes go through two phases of proliferation accompanied by apoptosis and separated by a quiescent period during the end of fetal development. P63 is a member of the P53 gene family that yields six(More)
Gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists and antagonists have been widely used to prevent premature LH surge during ovarian stimulation. However, studies have shown a significantly lower serum oestradiol concentration on the day of human chorionic gonadotrophin administration for cycles using GnRH antagonist. This study compared aromatase gene(More)
In rabbit granulosa cells, two cytochrome P450 aromatase (P450 arom) mRNAs issued from promoter II were described: a full-length and a truncated transcript. Western blot analysis showed two P450 arom proteins with apparent molecular masses of 53 and 46 kDa, which are consistent with the predicted theoretical sizes of proteins encoded by these two(More)
The aim of the present study was to analyse the tissue-specific expression of various promoter-derived transcripts from the gene encoding rabbit aromatase cytochrome P450. A new promoter, named I.r, was identified, and promoters II and I.r were sequenced. Promoter I.r-derived transcripts were found in preovulatory granulosa cells, corpus luteum, placenta(More)
Devic's neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is a severe inflammatory and autoimmune disease producing demyelinating lesions. Recent data suggest that a complex genetic component could be involved. While impairment of glutamate homeostasis has emerged as a contributing etiological factor in NMO, a genetic alteration of Excitatory Amino Acid Transporter 2(More)
The aim of the present study was to quantify the promoter II- and I.r-derived transcripts of p450 aromatase gene during follicular stages and during corpus luteum formation in the rabbit. An ovulatory dose of hCG induced, first the disappearance of 90% of aromatase transcripts since 6 h before ovulation, and second a gradual decrease during pseudopregnancy.(More)
In breast carcinoma cells, high levels of hyaluronan (HA) and its CD44 receptor are frequently associated with alteration in estrogen signaling. We demonstrate that stable hyaluronate synthase 2 (HAS2) overexpression in estrogen receptor α (ERα) -positive MCF7 cells oppositely altered estrogen dependence of cell growth and its sensitivity towards(More)
