Volume 13, Issue 3 , September 2022, , Pages 393-401

  Breast cancer (BC) is a significant cause of global mortality in women. This study was aimed to evaluate the immune-activation of malignant BC via the administration of attenuated Mycobacterium obuense. For this purpose, an in vivo model was developed with BALB/c mice. Mice were injected with 2.00 × ...  Read More

The effect of intracerebroventricular administration of neuropeptide Y on reproductive axis function in the male Wistar rats: Involvement of hypothalamic KiSS1/GPR54 system

Vahid Azizi; Shahrbanoo Oryan; Homayoun Khazali

Volume 11, Issue 3 , September 2020, , Pages 249-256

  Several studies have shown that neuropeptide Y (NPY) is considered to be one of the key regulators of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis in the mammals. Also, kisspeptin is a powerful upstream regulator of gonadotropin-releasing hormone neurons in the hypothalamus. The present study aims to investigate ...  Read More

Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARα, PPARγ and PPARβ/δ) gene expression profile on ram spermatozoa and their relation to the sperm motility

Ali Kadivar; Heidar Heidari Khoei; Hossein Hassanpour; Hamid Ghanaei; Arefeh Golestanfar; Hossein Mehraban; Najmeh Davoodian; Roohollah Dehghani Tafti

Volume 7, Issue 1 , March 2016, , Pages 27-34

  Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) are a member of nuclear receptors superfamily, which mainly regulate the expression of target genes involved in lipid and energy metabolism. These receptors are divided to three isotypes: PPARα, PPARγ and PPARβ/δ. Each isotype ...  Read More
