In this work we studied the influence of sex hormones on heart and mitochondrial functions, from adult castrated female and male, and intact rats. Castration was performed at their third week of life and on the fourth month animals were subjected to heart ischemia and reperfusion. Electrocardiogram and blood pressure recordings were made, cytokines levels were measured, histopathological studies were performed and thiobarbituric acid reactive species were determined. At the mitochondrial level… Expand
