The pathology of brain atrophy mediated by alcohol was investigated in all parts of the cerebral cortex (the frontal, parietal, temporal lobes and occipital cortex) by using two markers: parvalbumin (PV) and glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP). Three-month old male Wistar rats were divided into control (C) and alcohol-exposed groups. The control group(More)
Alcohol induces impairment of cognition, learning and memory. Neurotoxic effects of alcohol on the pathology of the hippocampus and the cingulate cortex were investigated in experimental rats. Parvalbumin (PV), a calcium-binding protein, is a crucial component of GABAergic neurons and glial fibrillary acidic protein immunoreactive (GFAP-ir) astrocytes have(More)
Muscle weakness is common during menopause. Effective estrogen replacement was hypothesized to prevent sarcopenia. This study aimed to investigate the estrogen level, estrogen receptors (α and β) immunoreactivities, muscle mass and functions, and parvalbumin (PV) levels in the extensor digitorum longus (EDL) and the gastrocnemius muscles of ovariectomized(More)
Chronic excessive alcohol administration has been reported to be associated with diastolic dysfunction. Parvalbumin (PV) is a calcium-binding protein present in cardiac myocytes and involved in mediating relaxation. Therefore, alteration of PV levels may affect relaxation in cardiac myocytes. This study investigated the effects of alcohol administration on(More)
Changes of parvalbumin protein levels and immunolocalisation during the postnatal development of the female rat heart were investigated in order to determine if they were correlated with age-related changes in cardiac function. Hearts from newborn, 3-month-old (young), 6-month-old (young adult) and 12-month-old (adult) female Wistar rats were processed for(More)
Hypogonadism is characterized by a decline in sex hormone levels, especially testosterone. It has been shown to be an important contributor to the decrease in muscle mass, muscle strength and performance, a condition known as sarcopenia. Preparations from Butea superba Roxb. (red Kwao Krua) have been reported to have androgenic properties. The active(More)
The study investigated the effects of estrogen on parvalbumin (PV) levels in cardiac myocytes of ovariectomized rats, which is a model system for postmenopausal woman. Parvalbumin acts as a relaxing factor in cardiac myocytes. Adult female Wistar rats, 12 weeks old, were randomly divided into 5 groups of 10: sham-operated (SHAM), ovariectomized (OVX), and(More)
Parvalbumin (PV), which is a small (12kDa) cytoplasmic calcium-binding protein, has been implicated in mediating relaxation in cardiac myocytes. The influence of aging and exercise on the distribution of PV in rat heart was investigated. Male Wistar rats aged 3, 6, 12 and 18-months were divided into sedentary and exercise groups. The exercise group(More)
