To understand the physiological implication of inhibiting the LIMK/Cofilin signaling pathway in sperm physiology, we demonstrated that inhibition of pLIMK1 with BMS-3 resulted in low levels of F-actin. What is the relative contribution of RhoA/C and Rac1 during capacitation is still unknown. Another important aspect to determine is how the LIMK1/Cofilin signaling pathway interacts with PLD1, which was shown to be essential for actin polymerization in bovine sperm. One interesting possibility is that pCofilin stimulates PLD1 activity as demonstrated recently
|Body Surface Area (m2)||0.007||0.025||0.15||0.05||0.02||0.5|
|Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by||Animal B Km|
|Animal A Km|
For example, to modify the dose of resveratrol used for a mouse (22.4 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 22.4 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for resveratrol of 11.2 mg/kg.
