Histol Histopathol. 2009;24:1-12 pubmed publisher..These results suggest the existence of two structurally different epithelial segments along the ductuli efferentes of the alpaca, with a high degree of compartmentalization of the secretory and absorptive activities...
- Parillo F, Catone G, Maranesi M, Gobbetti A, Gasparrini B, Russo M, et al. Immunolocalization, gene expression, and enzymatic activity of cyclooxygenases, prostaglandin e2-9-ketoreductase, and nitric oxide synthases in Mediterranean buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) corpora lutea during diestrus. Microsc Res Tech. 2012;75:1682-90 pubmed publisher..These results support the idea that COX, NOS, and PGE2-9-K regulate buffalo CL life span. In particular, regressive CL seems involved in the development of the contralateral early CL, through the production of the luteotrophic PGE2. ..
