Celebrating 75 years of oestradiol.
- Biology, MedicineJournal of molecular endocrinology
The history of the discovery of oestrogens, the mechanisms of their synthesis, and their therapeutic applications are very important components of the fabric of endocrinology and the rationale for highlighting several key components of this story is provided.

Estradiol and Estrogen-like Alternative Therapies in Use: The Importance of the Selective and Non-Classical Actions
The current knowledge about estrogen effects in a broader sense is reviewed, and the possibility of using selective estrogen-receptor modulators, selective estrogen -receptor downregulators, phytoestrogens, and activators of non-genomic estrogen-like signaling (ANGELS) molecules as treatment are reviewed.
Rapidity and Precision of Steroid Hormone Measurement
- Biology, MedicineJournal of clinical medicine
Steroids are present in all animals and plants, from mammals to prokaryotes. In the medical field, steroids are commonly classified as glucocorticoids, mineralocorticoids, and gonadal steroid…
Estrogens and female developing brain: two sides of the coin
- BiologyREPRODUCTIVE ENDOCRINOLOGY
It was concluded that in the early stages of female life, estrogens play a different role in the programming of the neuroendocrine system and behavior, depending on the period of individual development.
In Silico Prediction of Steroids and Triterpenoids as Potential Regulators of Lipid Metabolism
- Chemistry, MedicineMarine drugs
This review focuses on a rare group of steroids and triterpenoids that share common properties as regulators of lipid metabolism and related processes such as anti-hyperlipoproteinemic activity, as well as the treatment of atherosclerosis, lipoprotein disorders, or inhibitors of cholesterol synthesis.

Nuclear Hormone Receptors and Their Ligands: Metabolites in Control of Transcription
This review makes a brief historical journey from the first observations by Berthold in 1849 to the era of orphan receptors that began with the sequencing of the Caenorhabditis elegans genome in 1998 and defines four classes of metabolites—fatty acids, terpenoids, porphyrins and amino acid derivatives—that generate all known ligands for nuclear hormone receptors.
