The incorporation of 3H-17-beta oestradiol (3H-E2) and 3H-Tergurid (3H-Te) in the uteri of sexually immature rats was monitored for 16 hours following the treatment of the animals with Tergurid, a semisynthetic ergot alkaloid [chemically acid N-(D-6-methyl-8-isoergolin-I-yl)--N',N'-diethylurea maleate; VUFB-6638]. The differences in the incorporation of 3H-Te in relation to the presence of ovarial steroids (E2 and progesterone) were investigated for the same period of time in the adult ovariectomized rats. In all the time intervals under study, the average values of 3H-E2 activities in the uteri of juvenile rats treated with Tergurid were lower than in the controls. This decrease was statistically significant (P less than 0.05) eight hours after treatment. The time course of the incorporation of 3H-Te in the uteri of the experimental and control animals was about the same. The activities of incorporated 3H-Te in the uteri of adult rats treated with E2 were higher in all the intervals, the difference being statistically significant after two hours and 16 hours (P less than 0.05) and after four hours (P less than 0.01). Progesterone did not induce any significant differences in the incorporation of 3H-Te. These results suggest th...Continue Reading

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.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

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.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

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