Endothelial and vascular smooth muscle cells express both estrogen receptor (ER) α and β. Recent findings indicate that vascular ERβ and ERα may substitute for one another. Here, we investigate vascular morphology, contractility and protein expression in intact aorta from adult (4 months old) female mice lacking both ERα and ERβ (DERKO). The body weights… CONTINUE READING
