Altered estrogen receptor expression in skeletal muscle and adipose tissue of female rats fed a high-fat diet.


Estrogen receptors (ERs) are expressed in adipose tissue and skeletal muscle, with potential implications for glucose metabolism and insulin signaling. Previous studies examining the role of ERs in glucose metabolism have primarily used knockout mouse models of ERα and ERβ, and it is unknown whether ER expression is altered in response to an obesity… (More)
