  • The effects of estrogen on responsive cells and organismic development have long been known and well documented. Estrogen binds to the estrogen receptor, a dimer of the complex translocates to the nucleus, binds specific DNA elements and regulates the transcription of particular genes, a process that takes some time to achieve. One of the curious findings of intense estrogen research-that some estrogen-dependent effects appear to occur immediately-has led to the conclusion that quick responses… CONTINUE READING
