The steroid hormone estrogen profoundly influences growth and differentiation programs in the reproductive tract of cycling and pregnant mamals. It is thought that estrogen exerts its cellular effects by regulating the expression of specific target genes. We utilized a messenger RNA differential display method to identify the genes whose expression is modulated by estrogen in the preimplantation rat uterus. Here we report the cloning of a novel gene (ERG1) that is tightly regulated by estrogen… CONTINUE READING
