GABAergic inhibition of the pars reticularis substantia nigra neurons leads to further GABAergic inhibition of the thalamus, ultimately stimulating glutamatergic impulse transmission to the cerebral cortex (Herrero et al.
Though regulation of adrenarche is not well understood, we hypothesize that HCB may disrupt the production of sex steroids in the zona reticularis of the adrenals and impair activation or responsiveness to androgens at the tissue levels (Havelock et al.
The presentation of calcific uremic arteriolopathy in the early stages is typically with dysesthesia, progressing to an erythematous, violaceous rash similar to livedo reticularis.
The medical profession has very little recognition of adrenal estrogen produced by the inner layer adrenal cortex; however, there is a medical mention of androgen, which is produced by that same adrenal layer, referred to as the zona reticularis.
There was atrophy of the zona fasciculata and the zona reticularis, and compensatory hypertrophy of the medulla of the adrenal glands in the samples taken from two of the rats in Phase I (Fig.

The similar Arothron reticularis (Bloch & Schneider, 1801), also a large Indo-Pacific species with a type locality of India and ranging east to Fiji (Herre 1936), is much less common (for example, the Bishop Museum has 38 lots of A.
