The aim of this study was to determine the effect on ovarian follicular growth and atresia, of acute treatment with either 100 mg of progesterone (n = 10), 200 mg of progesterone (n = 10), 10 mg of oestradiol + 100 mg of progesterone (n = 10), 10 mg of oestradiol (n = 10) or no treatment (n = 10), given on Day 10 of a 17-day treatment with a norgestomet implant in randomly cycling Bos indicus heifers. The fate of the dominant follicle on Day 10, emergence of the new cohort of follicles and the intervals from implant removal to ovulation were recorded by ultrasonography. Plasma concentrations of Luteinizing hormone (LH), progesterone and oestradiol were determined during the time when the norgestomet implant was in place. All treatments resulted in the emergence of a new cohort of follicles within 5 days of administration. The day of emergence of the ovulatory follicle tended to be delayed after treatment with 100 mg of progesterone (2.7 +/- 0.3 days after treatment), 200 mg of progesterone (3.7 +/- 0.5 days after treatment), 10 mg of oestradiol + 100 mg of progesterone (4.4 +/- 0.2 days after treatment) and 10 mg of oestradiol (4.6 +/- 0.4 days after treatment) compared to control heifers (1.4 +/- 1.4 days after time of treatme...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.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

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.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

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.
