    Abstract : Recent research demonstrated that besides a role in sex determination and male fertility, the Y chromosome is involved in additional functions including prostate cancer, sex-specific effects on the brain and behaviour, graft-versus-host disease, nociception, aggression and autoimmune diseases. The results presented in this thesis include an analysis of sex-biased genes encoded on the X and Y chromosomes of rodents. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ovarian steroids in rat and human brain effects of different endocrine states

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Marie Bixo; Umeå universitet.; [1987]

    Abstract : Ovarian steroid hormones are known to produce several different effects in the brain. In addition to their role in gonadotropin release, ovulation and sexual behaviour they also seem to affect mood and emotions, as shown in women with the premenstrual tension syndrome. Some steroids have the ability to affect brain excitability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Expression of cathelicidin antimicrobial peptides in man and rat

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)
