This study was conducted to investigate the involvement of selenium and glutathione peroxidase in
prostaglandin biosynthesis by the ram vesicular gland.
Vesicular glands were collected from healthy intact
rams covering a wide range of selenium nutrition and were
analyzed for selenium concentrations, glutathione
peroxidase activities and levels of prostaglandin E₂...
Four experiments were conducted to determine oxytocin concen tration of bovine luteal tissue at different stages of the estrous cycle and to study the effects of prostaglandins F₂α (PGF₂α), E₂ (PGE₂), luteinizing hormone (LH), cycloheximide, colchicine and cytochalasin B on oxytocin synthesis and release in vitro. In experiment 1, luteal...
This study was conducted to investigate the distribution
of glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) and selenium in
semen of the boar, bull, ram and stallion, and in the reproductive
tissues of the boar, bull and ram. The effect
of repeated noncryoprotective freeze-thawing on GSH-Px
activity was also studied. Both hydrogen peroxide (H₂0₂)...
