Effects of estradiol (E2) and catechol-estrogens (CEs: 2-OHE2 and 4-OHE2) on uterine ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) activity have been compared in immature rats. The intensity of their actions by s.c. (1 microgram) and intrauterine right-horn (i.u., 25 ng) injection was in the order of: 4-OHE2 > or = E2 > 2-OHE2. Although i.u. -injection of E2 caused an… CONTINUE READING
