The effects of estrogen treatment on uterine weight, uterine
nucleic acid content and adrenal weight were studied. Daily doses
of 0.05μg or 0.1 μg of Estradiol 17-β were administered subcutaneously
to seven day castrated female rats for periods varying
from 0 to 168 days. After two days of treatment uterine...
Newborn rats exhibit a torporous response to cold stress at 2°C
from which they revive after several hours exposure even though
respiratory, cardiovascular, and muscular movements have ceased.
At less severe temperatures (20 to 25°C) the rats respond with a non-torporous
decrease in metabolic and physiologic activity and a lowering...
Rat luteal cells from functional and non-functional
corpora lutea (corpora lutea rendered non-functional by
hypophysectomy) were preserved for light and electron
microscopy in Bouin's and glutaraldehyde-osmium fixation
respectively. Material for electron microscopy was dehydrated
with ethanol, embedded in Araldite and stained
with lead hydroxide or uranyl acetate-lead citrate. Examination
The effects of coumestrol on the uterine weight, uterine fluid
imbibition, uterine nucleic acid content, adrenal weight and body
weight of female rats were studied. Daily doses of 20 micrograms
of coumestrol per 0.1cc propylene glycol were administered subcutaneously
to spayed rats following a seven day recovery period,
SH 714 (1, 2-alpha-methylene-6-chloro-delta-4, 6-17-alphahydroxyprogesterone
acetate) synthesized by Schering AG is an highly
antiandrogenic, nonestrogenic compound. The present investigation
was undertaken to determine the compound's effect upon the cell
associations of the germinal epithelium in the mature rat. From germinal epithelium for this dosage level of SH 714 was exhibited...
Female Sprague-Dawley rats (220-240 g) were ovariectomized
and seven days later were either treated as controls or received a
single injection of either 0.1 μg, 100 μg, or 2 mg of estradiol-17β dissolved in 0.1 cc propylene glycol. These rats were autopsied
either 1, 3, 6, 24, 48, or 72...
Black liquor recovery boilers experience significant fire-side fouling problems due to the deposition of entrained particulate matter. Increased understanding of the mechanisms by which particles deposit on these surfaces will lead to more effective management of the resultant problems. There is some evidence which suggests that the sub-micron fraction of...
In deciduous species, water exits stems mainly through leaf traces
attached to the outer growth ring and yet we know that water ascends
throughout the entire cross-section of the sapwood. There is an increasing
amount of information on sap flow and sapwood hydraulic properties from
separate studies, but little information...
Disturbances are a prevalent and important part of ecosystems. Many landscape patterns that we find today were created, maintained, and changed by natural disturbance regimes. This is especially true for fire, which has historically been a common, natural disturbance in the western U.S forests and grasslands and many other parts...
