In rodents, chronic estrogenization has been shown to induce degeneration of dendrites and myelin figures in the hypothalamic arcuate nucleus adjacent to peroxidase-positive astrocyte processes. Because in this brain region estradiol is metabolized to 2-hydroxyestradiol (catecholestrogen), we hypothesized that the latter may be oxidized by the astrocytic(More)
