Testicular atrophy, zinc concentration, and angiotensin-converting enzyme activity in the testes of vitamin a-deficient rats


Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) as a part of the renin angiotensin system (RES) regulates blood pressure and fluid and electrolyte homeostasis, and the enzyme is considered to have a function in reproduction. Reduced enzyme activities have been observed in atrophied testes as a results of zinc and pituitary deficiencies. Vitamin A deficiency causes… (More)
