Melatonin influences on steroidoigenic gene expression in the ovary of pinealectomized rats

Wednesday, June 25, 2014
Because Cyp17a1 expression level was increased in the theca interna and interstitial cells in pinealectomized rats receiving vehicle, melatonin may influence CYP17A1 expression and steroidogenesis in the ovaries.

The protective effects of tacrolimus on rat uteri exposed to ischemia reperfusion injury A biochemical and histopathological evaluation

Monday, March 31, 2014
Tacrolimus has protective effects against uterine ischemia-reperfusion injury induced by distal abdominal aortic occlusion, and these cytoprotective effects may be due to its antioxidant and antiinflammatory properties.

Modulation of microvascular permeability in the preovulatory rat ovary by an ovulatory gonadotropin stimulus

Friday, March 1, 2013
Preovulatory gonadotropin stimulation induces changes in ovarian permeability, with an increase in the radii of the small and large pores and a threefold increase in the large pore fraction of the hydraulic conductance.

Uterine rejection after allogeneic uterus transplantation in the rat is effectively suppressed by tacrolimus

Friday, March 1, 2013
In a rat model of allogeneic uterus transplantation, the immunosuppressant tacrolimus effectively prevented uterine rejection, and expression patterns of inflammation-/implantation-related proteins of the uteri were similar to those of controls.

Altered insulin induced relaxation of aortic rings in a dihydrotestosterone induced rodent model of polycystic ovary syndrome

Monday, February 4, 2013
Insulin-dependent vasorelaxation in aortic rings in a PCOS rat model is decreased (both NO-dependent or independent), and vitamin D treatment can improve only the NO-independent model.

Viability and function of the cryopreserved whole rat ovary: comparison between slow-freezing and vitrification

Friday, May 4, 2012
Initial findings suggest that a moderate concentration of the cryoprotectant dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) is superior to a high DMSO concentration for both vitrification and slow freezing.
