Reproductive, physiological, and molecular outcomes in female mice deficient in Dhh and Ihh.

Ovarian development requires coordinate communications between oocytes, granulosa cells, and theca cells. Two Hedgehog (Hh) pathway ligands, desert (Dhh) and indian hedgehog (Ihh), are produced by the granulosa cells and work together to regulate theca cell specification and development. Mice lacking both Dhh and Ihh resulted in the loss of normal ovarian function and raised the question of which ...

Alternative splicing of GnRH2 and GnRH2-associated peptide plays roles in gonadal differentiation of the rice field eel, Monopterus albus.

The rice field eel, Monopterus albus, is a protogynous hermaphrodite fish, in which the gonads are initially female ovaries which then transform into male testes. The exact mechanisms governing sex reversal in the rice field eel are unknown. In this study, a novel alternative splicing variant of GnRH2 (GnRH2-SV), retaining the second intron, was discovered in the gonad of the rice field eel. Compa...

Androgen Excess- Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Society: position statement on depression, anxiety, quality of life, and eating disorders in polycystic ovary syndrome.

To formulate clinical consensus recommendations for screening depression, anxiety, health-related quality of life (HRQoL), and disordered eating symptoms in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and review prevalence based on phenotypes and ethnicity, changes over time, etiology, and impact of treatment.

Peroxiredoxin 2 deficiency accelerates age-related ovarian failure through the reactive oxygen species-mediated JNK pathway in mice.

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced in biological reactions have been shown to contribute to ovarian aging. Peroxiredoxin 2 (Prx2) is an antioxidant enzyme that protects cells by scavenging ROS; however, its effect on age-related, oxidative stress-associated ovarian failure has not been reported. Here, we investigated its role in age-related ovarian dysfunction and 4-vinylcyclohexene diepoxide ...

Cumulative live birth rates after IVF in patients with polycystic ovaries: phenotype matters.

Do cumulative live birth rates (CLBR) vary among women with different polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) phenotypes who undergo IVF/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) treatment?

Vasopressin during laparoscopic myomectomy: Does it really extend its limits?.

Τo investigate whether the use of vasopressin played an important role in the safe expansion of the indications of laparoscopic myomectomy in our practice.
