Effect of benomyl on reproduction in the male rat

Toxicology Letters
S D Carter, J W Laskey


Adult Sprague-Dawley male rats (65 days of age) received 10 daily treatments of 0, 200 or 400 mg benomyl/kg/day by gavage. Body weight, tissue weights, total epididymal sperm counts and sperm concentration from the vas deferens were measured 14 days after the last treatment. Testicular histology was evaluated in the 0 and 400 mg/kg/day groups. Significant findings included 35-48% depressions in the total epididymal sperm counts and in the vas deferens sperm concentrations in adult animals treated with 200 or 400 mg/kg/day. Histological evaluations of testicular sections from 6 adult animals in the 400 mg/kg/day group indicated a slight to moderately severe hypospermatocytogenesis in 2 animals and a slight to severe generalized hypospermatogenesis in 2 animals. Caudal epididymis weight were significantly (P less than 0.05) depressed with benomyl treatment. No treatment effects were found in body weight, liver, kidney, tests, or seminal vesicle weights.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.

Glut1 Deficiency

Glut1 deficiency, an autosomal dominant, genetic metabolic disorder associated with a deficiency of GLUT1, the protein that transports glucose across the blood brain barrier, is characterized by mental and motor developmental delays and infantile seizures. Follow the latest research on Glut1 deficiency with this feed.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Cell Atlas Along the Gut-Brain Axis

Profiling cells along the gut-brain axis at the single cell level will provide unique information for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and insights into how changes in the map underlie health and disease of the GI system and its crosstalk with the brain.
