... It is notable that dysfunction of mitochondrial complex I has been recently linked to the loss of dopaminergic neurons and metabolic changes in the substantia nigra of mice, causing a human-like parkinsonism [48], and that low activity of mitochondrial complexes I, II and III has been reported in lymphocytes and platelets of PD patients [49,50]. Thioredoxin has antioxidant activity that protects dopaminergic neurons in animal models of PD [51], and its palmitoylation has been shown to modulate its activity [52,53]. Although the role of Tubulin Beta in PD is not well defined, its degradation seems to be regulated by Parkin [54], and its palmitoylation has been suggested [55]. ...
... The TXNRDs are very important for neuronal protection and have been implicated in neurodegenerative disease [39]. For example, overexpression of TXNRD1 has proven effective in preventing DNA damage and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress associated with PD pathology in mice [40], and TXNRD2 overexpression can reduce inflammation-induced death of N2a mouse neuroblastoma cells [41]. Recent advances have also revealed that the antioxidant activity of TXNRD may mediate the effects of antidepressant medications. ...
... A plenty of active components involved in DLTD have been proved to have antiinflammatory, anti-apoptotic, and anti-oxidative stress effects. Astragaloside Ⅳ (AS-Ⅳ), one of the main active components of HuangQi, has been reported to effectively reduce apoptosis level in brain cells [29] . Furthermore, Aucubin is a natural compound in DuZhong. ...
... Differences among sheep and goats in this anatomical region have not been explored, however researchers have found that the length of the cubonavicular facet is significantly longer in open-adapted bovids than in bovids from forested environments. The cubonavicular facet is also significantly longer in wild cursorial bovids than in semi-free and domestic cursorial bovids, like sheep [25,26]. All these results point to a functional signal in these differences. ...
... Agstragaloside IV, a major active compound extracted from the root of Huangqi, has extensive pharmacological activities, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidative, antiviral and anticancer functions (Liu, Shang, et al. 2020;Ge and He 2020;Hu et al. 2021). Studies shown that agstragaloside IV stimulates the formation of autophagosomes and its fusion to lysosomes in H1N1 infection. ...
... These cells in adenohypophysis are arranged as clusters or cords of cells as reported by Mahmood (2014). Using H&E, the neurohyphopysis revealed two types of pituicytes: fibrous and protoplasmic, as described by Ye et al., (2018) in camels. Furthermore, three types of pituicyte nuclei were identified in the GCR neurohypophysis: as oval shape nucleus, triangular shape nucleus and elongated shaped nucleus. ...

However, (23) in camel, mentioned that the bulbourethral glands were compound tubuloalveolar glands has three types of secretory units which designated (A, B and C). Type A is lined with high columnar cells and the cytoplasm contains lots of secretory granules, which are PAS-positive, Alcian Blue-positive. ...
... The present study demonstrated modified vascular endothelial cells that had a pear-shaped appearance, suggesting their role to perform additional functions. Similar observations were made in the vascular endothelium of the coronary artery of Bactrian camel by En El Camello Bactriano (2016) and in the pulmonary arteries of rabbits (Hussein, 2019). The authors reported that the characteristics of endothelial modification are an adaption to withstand the strong blood flow within the arteries of camels in the dry and hot climate. ...
... The caudal pole of right and left adrenal glands was connected with the cranial pole of the corresponding kidney by a fibrous cord like structure (Fig1). The finding was in partial harmony with the findings of Wenling et al (2015) in Bactrian camel, who found that a novel connection between the adrenal gland and the kidney that mainly consisted of fibrous tissue, blood vessels and nerve bundles in Bactrian camel and named it fibrous tissue-blood vessels-nerve bundles (FBN bundle). ...
