OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effects of the local release of fibroblast growth factor (FGF), insulin-like growth factor (IGF), and growth hormone (GH) on a germ cell population of ipsilateral undescended and contralateral descended testes of rats with a surgically created unilateral abdominal testis for 12 weeks and after the application of growth factors after orchidopexy.

The effects of double release of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) and growth factor 1 (TGF1) from nanoparticles on the growth of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells and their differentiation into cartilage cells were studied on PLGA scaffolds. The release was achieved by using nanoparticles of poly(lactic acid-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) and poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) carrying IGF-I and TGF1, respectively. On tissue culture polystyrene (TCPS), TGF-1 released from PNIPAM nanoparticles was found to ...

Epidermal growth factor (EGF) modulates Leydig cell proliferation, steroidogenesis, spermiogenesis, and Sertoli cell activity. It plays an important role in repairing ischemia-reperfusion injury in different tissues. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of sustained and local administration of EGF on improving bilateral testicular tissue after torsion. A total of 57 Wistar albino rats were used. For the EGF transport system, 1x2 cm gelatin films containing 2 mug EGF were used. Torsion was creat...
Effects of ph on human growth hormone production by pichia pastoris considering the expression levels of regulatory genes
Bayraktar, Eda; Çalık, Pınar; Department of Chemical Engineering (2009)
In this study, the aim was to investigate the effects of pH on therapeutically important protein, recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH), production by Pichia pastoris considering the expression levels of regulatory genes. In this frame, firstly the host microorganism was selected between two different methanol utilization phenotypes of P. pastoris, Mut+ and MutS on media containing glycerol/methanol or sorbitol/methanol. The highest rhGH production, 120 g L-1, and hGH gene expression, 9.84x109 copies mg-1...
