Effect of restricted food intake on production, catabolism, and effects of IGF-I and cyclic nucleotides in cultured ovarian tissue of domestic nutria (Myocastor coypus).


The aims of these in vitro experiments were to examine the effects of short-term food restriction on ovarian secretory activity and the role of IGF-I and cAMP- and cGMP-dependent intracellular mechanisms in the control of ovarian function in domestic nutria. Slices of ovary from sexually mature animals kept under conditions of normal and restricted ((1/2… (More)
