Associations of Diestrus with chemical compounds

  • These data together with the normal expression in the cycling mice suggest that progesterone might repress Muc-1 expression during the metestrus and diestrus phases [26].
  • Highest levels of glucose utilization occurred during proestrus and metestrus, whereas lower rates were found during estrus and diestrus [27].
  • This resulted in HPV16 neutralizing titers of IgG only being achieved during diestrus upon parenteral immunization [28].
  • We found that following Depo-provera-treatment, mice had prolonged diestrus that lasted more than 4 weeks [29].
  • In female rats in diestrus a 1:125,000 dilution of anti-bLH-beta stained Kurosumi-Oota "LH cells," "FSH cells," and cells with some morphological characteristics of both types [30].

Gene context of Diestrus

  • Ovarian GnRH mRNA levels increased in the morning of diestrus 1 and early afternoon of proestrus [31].
  • The pituitary GnRH receptor content in PCO rats was similar to that observed in normal controls at estrus and was significantly lower than that for rats at diestrus [32].
  • Pacap mRNA levels in the PVN declined significantly on the morning of diestrus [33].
  • The Bf mRNA remained undetectable, whereas a readily detectable C3 mRNA level reappeared, in diestrus [34].
  • The expression of CRLR and RAMP1 was significantly (P < 0.05) elevated during pregnancy compared to nonpregnant diestrus state (NP-DE) [35].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Diestrus

  • Ovariectomy on the day of diestrus prevented the decline in the responsiveness of the anterior lobe to the actions of dopamine normally seen 2 days later (on the presumptive day of estrus) [36].
  • Estradiol facilitated the effect of stimulation on early appearance of leucocytes in the vaginal smear in the estrous cycle and pseudopregnancy-length diestrus; contrarily, progesterone, in a few cases, inhibited both effects [37].
  • Using quantitative PCR, we determined that levels of GC-A and GC-B mRNAs were highest in the ovaries of proestrous animals and were approximately 2- to 3-fold higher than the levels seen at diestrus [38].
  • Coronal hippocampal sections from diestrus rats were immunolabeled with antibodies to ERbeta and examined by light and electron microscopy [39].
  • On the morning of diestrus, each rat was ovariectomized and assigned to one of three treatment groups: Control--injected with sesame oil (n = 5); Surge--injected with estradiol benzoate (EB, 10 micrograms) to produce an LH surge (n = 5); or, Surge+Prazosin--injected with EB and a prazosin-filled inner cannula was put into the POA (n = 6) [40].
