Abstract: BackgroundConsidering the similarity between the testis-specific isoform of angiotensin-converting enzyme and the C-terminal catalytic domain of somatic ACE as well as the structural and functional variability of its natural inhibitors, known as bradykinin-potentiating peptides (BPPs), the effects of different synthetic peptides, BPP-10c ( Show more

“…BPP-10c and BPP-AP, for example, showed an intense disruption of the epithelium and high degree of seminiferous tubule degeneration. Curiously, no morphological or morphometric alterations were observed in animals treated with captopril or BPP-11e [14]. These data have suggested that the alterations in the structure and function of the seminiferous epithelium in mice are dependent on their primary molecular structure and cannot be generalized for other BPPs [14].…”

These data have suggested that the alterations in the structure and function of the seminiferous epithelium in mice are dependent on their primary molecular structure and cannot be generalized for other BPPs [14]. In the current study, we investigated the toxicological effects of LMWF obtained from B. jararaca snake venom, on the dynamic and structure of the seminiferous epithelium in mice following intratesticular (i.t.)…”
