Steroidogenic acute regulatory protein star l.jpg
Steroidogenic Acute Regulatory Protein: StAR injection

  • Essential for steroid hormone biosynthesis

  • Cyclic-AMP dependent expression

  • Facilitates cholesterol transfer across inner-mitochondrial (aqueous) space

  • Translated as a 37 kDa precursor protein that is processed to the 30 kDa mature form as it translocates into the mitochondria

  • Cholesterol transport activity depends on intact DYm

What mediates the acute lps inhibition l.jpg
What mediates the acute LPS inhibition? injection

  • Tested numerous inflammatory mediators in Leydig cells in vitro-- none mimicked the acute LPS “effect”

    • cytokines (TNFa, IL-1, IL-6, IFNg, TGFb)

    • prostaglandins (PGF2a, PGE)

    • catecholamines (norepi, isoproteranol)



Carbonyl cyanide m chlorophenylhydrazone cccp l.jpg
Carbonyl cyanide injectionm-chlorophenylhydrazone (cccp)

  • Carbonyl cyanide m-chlorophenyl-hydrazone (cccp): potent uncoupler of oxidative phosphorylation; protonophore, mitochondrial disrupter.

  • Causes transient disruption of DYm

Do reactive oxygen species ros mediated the acute inhbitory effects of lps l.jpg
Do reactive oxygen species (ROS) mediated the acute inhbitory effects of LPS?

  • Testicular Macrophages are known to produce ROS when activated

  • ROS are produced rapidly after exposure to LPS

  • Many potential sources of ROS in testicular interstitium
