Alpha-2-macroglobulin (A2M) binds proteases, thereby acting as defense barriers against pathogens in the plasma and tissues of vertebrates and invertebrates. Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and the isobaric tags for relative and absolute quantitation method were used to determine the expression levels of A2M mRNA and proteins in(More)
Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase 1 (PCK1) is a multi-functional enzyme that plays important roles in physiological processes, including reproduction. We previously reported that the PCK1 transcript has five splice variants; PCK1-AS4, which lacks exon 5, is enriched in the testis of Holstein bulls. In the present study, we profiled select PCK1 transcript(More)
The aims of this study were (1) to evaluate the effect of high-dose erythropoietin (EPO; 5000 U/kg) on expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in the facial nucleus after facial nerve transection; and (2) to explore whether this effect is relevant to facial motor neuron survival. Forty-two Wistar rats (250-300 g) of both sexes were used in this(More)
