Phermonal Components of Intact Male Mice Preputial Gland in Relation to Flutamide Effects

Merza H. Homady*, Majeed AA

The present study is designed to investigate the effect of 2mg/ml/day of flutamide on the melanocortin -5-recepter (MC5R); total lipid compounds; essential pheromone compounds and histological  structure of the preputial gland of intact male mice after 42 days of treatment. Such treatment is resulted in a significant increase (P<0.01) of MC5R level as compared with the control group. Moreover the total lipid contents did not alter from that of the control, but most of the essential pheromones compounds are disappeared.

Petroclival Canal: A Rare Passage of the Abducens Nerve at the Petroclival Region-Anatomic Variation

Selim Kayaci*, Timur Yildirim, Mustafa Ogden, Ozkan Unal, Bulent Sam, Yilmaz Ucuncu

Petroclival canal (PCC), which occurs as a result of petrosfenoidal ligament (PSL) calsification is a different passage for the abducens nerve path. During performing the anatomic dissection of petroclival region of a the cadaveric specimen, we incidentally noted existence of a bony canal in which abducens nerve was passing through petro-occipital fissure (POF), petroclival canal. This variation was also confirmed by thin sections of computed tomography images.
