For the development of uterine receptivity, many morphological and molecular changes occur in the apical surface of luminal uterine epithelial cells (UECs) including an increase in vesicular activity. Vesicular movements for exocytosis and endocytosis are dependent on microtubules; however, changes in microtubules in UECs during early pregnancy have received little attention. β-tubulin, one of the main component of microtubules, is distributed throughout the cytoplasm of UECs on day 1 (non-receptive) of pregnancy in the rat...

The stem cells with their distinct ability of self-renewal and differentiation are considered an innovation in wound healing. However, there is lack of studies comparing the differential effect of the type and administration route of stem cells in the wound healing context. Thus, the current study has been designed to elucidate the effect of two of the most important stem cell types-the bone marrow-derived and adipose-derived stem cells in full thickness wound healing-and to evaluate, in this optimized wound model, the effectiveness of intradermal versus intravenous routes using H&E, Masson's trichrome, and PKH26-stained sections...

In recent years, several studies have found that the disruption of type IA receptor of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPR1A) could increase bone mass. However, whether disruption of BMPR1A could have an effect on bone quality and bone strength is currently unknown. Osteoblast-targeted conditional knockout (cKO) of BMPRIA by crossing 3.2-kb Col1-CreER™ mice with BMPR1A fx +/+ mice was conducted. Then, in vitro and in vivo studies were employed to examine the effect of BMPR1A knockout on bone quality and bone strength...

RNAscope® technology provided by Advanced Cell Diagnostics (ACD) allows the detection and evaluation of coinciding mRNA expression profiles in the same or adjacent cells in unprecedented quantitative detail using multicolor fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH). While already extensively used in thinly sectioned material of various pathological tissues and, to a lesser extent, in some whole mounts, we provide here a detailed approach to use the fluorescent RNAscope method in the mouse inner ear and thick brain sections by modifying and adapting existing techniques of whole mount fluorescent in situ hybridization (WH-FISH)...

The present study attempts to elucidate the role of TRPV1 cation channel receptor on primary repair in an incision-wounded mouse cornea in vivo. Previous study revealed that blocking TRPV1 suppressed myofibroblast formation and expression of transforming growth factor β1 (TGFβ1) in cultured keratocytes or ocular fibroblasts. Male C57BL/6 (wild-type; WT) mice and male C57BL/6 Trpv1-null (KO) mice incurred a full-thickness incision injury (1.8 mm in length, limbus to limbus) in the central cornea of one eye with a surgical blade under general and topical anesthesia...

Beta-hexosaminidase (Hex) is the major lysosomal enzyme associated with the event of fertilization. In this study, we have analyzed the distribution of Hex in the testis and the epididymis of the lizard, Eutropis carinata by a polyclonal antibody of β-hexosaminidase isoform (Hex A). Presence of Hex in the epididymis was performed by Western blotting. The result reveals that Hex A is present in the epididymal epithelium, lumen as well as spermatozoa. The anatomical distribution of Hex was studied by immunohistochemical localization...

We have previously demonstrated that human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (UC-MSCs) can differentiate into cardiomyocyte-like cells. However, no contracting cells were observed during differentiation. In this study, we generated induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from UC-MSCs using mRNA reprogramming and focused on the differentiation of reprogrammed iPSCs into functional cardiomyocytes. For cardiac differentiation, the spontaneously contracting cell clusters were present on day 8 of differentiation...

Familial neurohypophysial diabetes insipidus (FNDI), characterized by delayed-onset progressive polyuria and loss of arginine vasopressin (AVP) neuron, is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by AVP gene mutations. We previously generated a knock-in mouse model for FNDI, which recapitulated the phenotype of human FNDI. To address the mechanisms underlying AVP neuron loss, we subjected FNDI mice to intermittent water deprivation, which accelerated the phenotype and induced AVP neuron loss within a relative short period...

Mesenchymal stromal (stem) cells (MSCs) have multipotent differentiation capacity and exist in nearly all forms of post-natal organs and tissues. The immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory properties of MSCs have made them an ideal candidate in the treatment of diseases, such as sepsis, in which inflammation plays a critical role. One of the key mechanisms of MSCs appears to derive from their paracrine activity. Recent studies have demonstrated that MSC-derived extracellular vesicles (MSC-EVs) are at least partially responsible for the paracrine effect...

Recent studies demonstrated the expression of the insulin receptor (InsR) and its functional interaction with the transient receptor potential vanilloid type 1 receptor (TRPV1) in primary sensory neurons (PSNs). The present study was undertaken to reveal the target-specific expression of the InsR and its co-localization with the TRPV1 in rat PSNs. We assessed the localization of the InsR and its co-localization with the TRPV1 in PSNs retrogradely labelled with biotin-conjugated wheat germ agglutinin injected into the dorsal hind paw skin, the gastrocnemius muscle, the pancreas and the urinary bladder wall...

Survival of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) against oxidative stress and inflammation is vital for effective stem cell therapy. The reactive oxygen species (ROS) result in apoptosis and release of inflammatory mediators. Adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) have shown promise for stem cell therapy owing to their anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant activity. Previously, we showed the benefits of vitamin E against hydrogen peroxide (H2 O2 )-induced oxidative stress in rat bone marrow-derived MSCs. In this study, we aim to evaluate the effect of vitamin E treatment on porcine adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (pASCs) against H2 O2 -induced oxidative stress...

Neural vasopressin is a potent modulator of behaviour in vertebrates. It acts at both sensory processing regions and within larger regulatory networks to mediate changes in social recognition, affiliation, aggression, communication and other social behaviours. There are multiple populations of vasopressin neurons within the brain, including groups in olfactory and visual processing regions. Some of these vasopressin neurons, such as those in the main and accessory olfactory bulbs, anterior olfactory nucleus, piriform cortex and retina, were recently identified using an enhanced green fluorescent protein-vasopressin (eGFP-VP) transgenic rat...

The intercellular binding of desmosomal junctions is mediated by cadherins of the desmoglein (Dsg) and desmocollin (Dsc) type. Dsg2 mutant mice with deletion of a substantial segment of the extracellular EC1-EC2 domain, which is believed to participate in homo- and heterophilic desmosomal cadherin interactions, develop cardiac fibrosis and ventricular dilation. Widening of the intercellular cleft and complete intercalated disc ruptures can be observed in the hearts of these mice. Since a reduced litter size of homozygous Dsg2 mutant mice was noted and a functional correlation between desmosomes and embryo implantation has been deduced from animal studies, we looked for an alteration of desmosomes in uterine endometrial epithelium...

Ghrelin, a gut-brain peptide hormone, is implicated in a multiplicity of biological functions, including energy homeostasis and reproduction. Neuronal systems that are involved in energy homeostasis as well as reproduction traverse the hypothalamus; however, the mechanism by which they control energy homeostasis is not fully understood. The present study analyzes the anatomical relationship of neurons expressing gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH), neuropeptide Y (NPY) and growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) in a cichlid, tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)...

Oxytocin (OT) has drawn the attention of researchers since 1930. Since then, many aspects of oxytocin have been uncovered, such as reproductive functions, dampening anxiety, enhancing socioemotional behavior, or regulating genomic effects on a cellular level. Here, we want to focus on the interaction between the OT system and the stress/corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF)-system of the brain. Depending on the nature of the stressor, OT is released simultaneously or directly after the stress from the neurohypophysis into the periphery and/or via somato-dendritic release in stress-sensitive brain areas...

The central amygdala has a rich repertoire of neuropeptides and neuropeptide receptors. The diverse ways in which they modulate neuronal activity and influence synaptic activity are discussed here mostly in the context of fear and anxiety-related behaviour but also with respect to nociception, hunger and satiety and chronic alcohol exposure that often come together with anxiety. It appears that neuropeptides exert rather specific effects on behaviour and physiology that can be quite different from the effects evoked by opto- or chemogenetical stimulation of the central amygdala neurons that synthesise them or express their receptors...

In this study, G-coupled estrogen receptor (GPER) was inactivated, by treatment with antagonist (G-15), in testes of C57BL/6 mice: immature (3 weeks old), mature (3 months old) and aged (1.5 years old) (50 μg/kg bw), as well as MA-10 mouse Leydig cells (10 nM/24 h) alone or in combination with 17β-estradiol or antiestrogen (ICI 182,780). In G-15-treated mice, overgrowth of interstitial tissue was found in both mature and aged testes. Depending on age, differences in structure and distribution of various Leydig cell organelles were observed...
