Folia Morphol (Warsz). 2017;: pubmed publisher..Our data provide evidence that NOS isoforms may have roles in reproductive functions and in the developmental processes of the excurrent duct system in the alpaca. ..
- Zerani M, Boiti C, Dall Aglio C, Pascucci L, Maranesi M, Brecchia G, et al. Leptin receptor expression and in vitro leptin actions on prostaglandin release and nitric oxide synthase activity in the rabbit oviduct. J Endocrinol. 2005;185:319-25 pubmed..This study suggests that the oviduct could be a potential target for endocrine regulation by leptin, whose circulating levels may act as a metabolic signal modulating oviductal PG release through mediation of the NOS/NO system. ..

- Zerani M, Maranesi M, Brecchia G, Gobbetti A, Boiti C, Parillo F. Evidence for a luteotropic role of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma: expression and in vitro effects on enzymatic and hormonal activities in corpora lutea of pseudopregnant rabbits. Biol Reprod. 2013;88:62 pubmed publisher..These results indicate that PPARgamma plays a luteotropic role in pseudopregnant rabbits, through PTGS2 down-regulation and 3beta-HSD up-regulation, with a consequent PGF2alpha decrease and progesterone increase...
