Immunolocalisation of oestrogen receptor beta in human tissues.
Oestrogens exert their actions via specific nuclear protein receptors that are members of the steroid/thyroid receptor superfamily of transcription factors. Recently, a second oestrogen receptorExpand

Localisation and Function of the Endocannabinoid System in the Human Ovary
Background Although anandamide (AEA) had been measured in human follicular fluid and is suggested to play a role in ovarian follicle and oocyte maturity, its exact source and role in the human ovaryExpand

Expression of the endocannabinoid system in human first trimester placenta and its role in trophoblast proliferation.
The endocannabinoid, anandamide, which binds to two major receptor proteins, the cannabinoid receptors (CBs) 1 and 2 (CB1 and CB2), has been shown to play a role in first trimester miscarriageExpand

Plasma levels of the endocannabinoid anandamide in women--a potential role in pregnancy maintenance and labor?
Although exposure to exocannabinoids (e.g. marijuana) is associated with adverse pregnancy outcome, little is known about the biochemistry, physiology, and consequences of endocannabinoids in humanExpand

Histomorphometric evaluation of cannabinoid receptor and anandamide modulating enzyme expression in the human endometrium through the menstrual cycle
Plasma anandamide (AEA) levels fluctuate throughout the menstrual cycle and in early pregnancy in a pattern suggesting its involvement in implantation and early pregnancy maintenance throughExpand

Endocannabinoids and pregnancy.
Acylethanolamides such as anandamide (AEA), and monoacylglycerols like 2-arachidonoylglycerol are endocannabinoids that bind to cannabinoid, vanilloid and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors.Expand

Oestrogen receptor beta is the predominant oestrogen receptor in human scalp skin
Abstract: Oestrogens play a major role in non‐classic target tissues in both sexes, yet there have been few studies on estrogens and skin. Recently a second oestrogen receptor (ERβ) has beenExpand

Ultra performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry method for the measurement of anandamide in human plasma.
Anandamide (N-arachidonoylethanolamine, AEA) is an endocannabinoid present in human plasma that is associated with several physiological functions and disease states. Significant variability in AEAExpand
