The aim of our studies was to examine the effect of some food, drink and medical plants and their molecules on female ovarian endocrine and other functions in vitro and in vivo. We analysed the effects of plant (green tea, rooibos, ginkgo, flaxseed, chia, yukka) extracts and plant substances (green tea polyphenols, green tea epigallocatechin-3-gallate, curcumin, resveratrol, diadzein and diosgenin) on the release of hormones and markers of proliferation, apop...

The aim of our study was to elucidated the role of mTOR-dependent intracellular signalling pathway in control of ovarian functions. For this purpose, we have examine the effect of three mTOR inhibitors (resveratrol, curcumin and synthetic mTOR blocker MC 2183 – Mai et al. 20051, at the doses 0, 1, 10, 100 μg/ml) on apoptosis and steroidogenesis by cultured Japanese quail ovarian granulosa cells. The release of steroid hormones (progesterone and te...
