17Beta-estradiol modulates hMT1 melatonin receptor function.


Estrogen modulates expression and function of G-protein-coupled receptors. The goal of this study was to assess the effect of 17beta-estradiol (10 nM) exposure for 1 (E1) or 6 (E6) days on density and function of hMT1 and hMT2 melatonin receptors expressed in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells (CHO-MT1/CHO-MT2 cells). This strain of CHO cells expressed both… (More)
