|SAN FRANCISCO nike air max 270 tiger sale , May 15 (Xinhua) -- A new study identifies two chemicals found in anti-fertility folk medicines as effective in blocking a key step in fertilization and potential alternatives to hormone-based contraceptives.
Unlike hormone-based contraceptives, which sometimes cause side effects, the chemicals seem to have no adverse effect on egg or sperm, other than to prevent the sperm from pushing through the cells that congregate around the egg and an enveloping membrane called the zona pelucida.
Effective at low doses, according to the study published Monday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, they work by stopping sperm's power kick nike air max 270 light bone sale , which is normally stimulated by the hormone progesterone secreted by cells surrounding the egg and makes the sperm's tail whip forcefully to propel it into the egg.
One of these chemicals is pristimerin, from the plant Tripterygium wilfordii, also known as "thunder god vine." Leaves from the plant have been used as an antifertility drug in Chinese traditional medicine, though some compounds in the leaves are poisonous. It has also been used as a folk remedy for rheumatoid arthritis.
The other chemical is lupeol, which is found in plants such as mango and dandelion root. While it has been tested as an anticancer agent, it was not suspected of having contraceptive properties.
"Because these two plant compounds block fertilization at very nike air max 270 hot punch sale , very low concentrations," said Polina Lishko, an assistant professor of molecular and cell biology, who led the team that discovered the anti-fertility properties of the two chemicals.
"They could be a new generation of emergency contraceptive we nicknamed 'molecular condoms.' If one can use a plant-derived, non-toxic, non-hormonal compound in lesser concentration to prevent fertilization in the first place nike air max 270 grape sale , it could potentially be a better option."
"The massive influx of calcium into the sperm tail changes the sperm tail's beating pattern, making it highly asymmetrical," said Nadja Mannowetz, first author on the study. "This asymmetrical bending gives the sperm cell enough force to drill through the tenacious egg vestment."
Last year, Lishko, Mannowetz and and former postdoctoral fellow Melissa Miller found that the hormone progesterone is key to opening the calcium channel and triggering tail whipping. The hormone binds to a protein called ABHD2 nike air max 270 flyknit mens sale , which in turn opens the channel. They began a search for other chemicals that would bind to ABHD2, either opening the channel, like progesterone, or blocking the channel.
In the new study, Mannowetz tested three other hormones: testosterone, estrogen and cortisol nike air max 270 flyknit sale , a stress hormone. All three competed with progesterone and blocked tail whipping, though only testosterone and cortisol were effective at levels typical of the hormones' levels in the body. This suggests, she said, that stress and high testosterone levels in women decrease fertility in part by preventing sperm from penetrating the egg.
They also found a second hormone that triggers tail whipping: a steroid structurally similar to progesterone called pregnenolone sulfate.
Mannowetz found that both pristimerin and lupeol blocked progesterone binding to ADHD2, preventing sperm's power kick. "These compounds not only blocked calcium channel activation, but also blocked sperm hyperactivated motility www.airmax270sale.com , reducing their activity to the level of nonactivated sperm cells," Lishko was quoted as saying in a news release.
"It doesn't kill sperm basal motility. It is not toxic to sperm cells; they still can move. But they cannot develop this powerful stroke, because this whole activation pathway is shut down."

BUDAPEST, July 19 (Xinhua) -- All international trains crossing Hungary were delayed on Wednesday because of a bomb threat, Hungarian State Railway company MAV said.
A total of 18 international trains that were already in Hungary at time of the bomb threat were stopped and controlled by police before resuming service. Newly arriving trains will be controlled at the borders nike air max 270 for sale , MAV said in a statement.
The delays can reach from 1.5 to two hours, according to the Hungarian company.
Controls by Hungarian police are to go on until Wednesday at midnight local time.
Hungarian authorities have launched an investigation to find the person who committed the bomb threat.
MAV said about 20,000 people were affected by the delays.

If you ever gone fishing, trying to spot them might have made your mood gloomy regardless how lovely the lake, riverside or even ocean.Fishermen have long leaned on processes for spotting the right way nike air max 270 shoes sale , and they are generally now getting manifested directly into electronics together with LCD screens. This can be needed for modern-day fishermen, particularly mainly because a lot more them are obtaining such merchandise. Hummingbirdsfishfinders, that are a fantastic contribution t.
