OBJECTIVE To study expressions of Notch receptor isoforms (Notch 1, 2, and 3) in normal and varicocele-induced rat testes to examine their possible functions in cell fate. DESIGN Comparative and controlled study. SETTING Animal Care and Operation Unit, Akdeniz University. ANIMAL(S) Wistar male rats for experimental and control groups. INTERVENTION(S) The control group underwent a sham operation (n = 6). The experimental groups underwent partial ligation of the renal vein to induce an… CONTINUE READING
