In vitro effect of sex steroids on cytotoxic activity of splenic macrophages in wall lizard (Hemidactylus flaviviridis).

Abstract

Sexual dimorphism was observed in nitrite release and IL-1-like molecule production by splenic macrophages of the wall lizard (Hemidactylus flaviviridis), with a higher level in females than in males. Gonadectomy in both males and females resulted in a considerable increase of nitrite and IL-1-like molecule secretion, suggesting that the sex hormones… (More)
