Ovarian follicular cells - living in the shadow of stemness cellular competence

hormone production, bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells were added as oestrogen production may be encouraged by them resultingin a slight increase of viable cells. In addition, the negative feedback of oestrogen decreased the release of FSH and LH. This type of cHT increased the in vivo cell lifetime to the end of the experiment (at least three weeks more than without the bone marrow stem cell supplement) in rats, which is the equivalent of increasing their productive lifetime to 1%. Additionally, it has been demonstrated that increasing doses of vitamin C could

The impact of obesity to antioxidant defense parameters in adolescents with increased cardiovascular risk

rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and Ώ-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, vitamin C and E can reduce the weight and decrease the risk for metabolic disorders through mechanisms of cell signaling, gene-expression, decreased oxidative stress, inflammation and lipid accumulation ( 35 ). Exercise-induced weight loss could improve the whole body redox state by modulating both oxidative stress and antioxidant biomarkers, ameliorating endothelial dysfunction and inflammation ( 41 ). According to our results, it is obvious that obesity is strictly linked to changes in
