Endometrial nitrite concentration and the occurrence of uterine pathologies of cows
Keywords:Cows, Uterine illness, Nitrite concentration, Nitric oxide
AbstractThe occurrence of uterine pathologies was evaluated considering uterine nitrite concentration. The uterus of 25 non pregnant cows was washed with 1ml of PBS to measure the nitrite concentration using the Griess reaction. There was significant relationship between high nitrite concentration with angiomatosis dystrophy (157,57±108,80 µM), endometritis (102,96±87,58 µM) and periglandular fibrosis (99,15±89,75 µM). No relation was found between nitrite concentration and cystic endometrial hyperplasia (94,07±18,89 µM) and adenomyosis (77,40±81,25 µM). However, high nitrite concentration showed a significant relationship with deep accentuate adenomyosis by t test. The data suggest that nitric oxide synthesis is elevated in these illnesses.
