Estrogen receptor beta modulates permeability transition in brain mitochondria.
Effect of estrogens on base excision repair in brain and liver mitochondria of aged female rats
Investigation of the effect of estrogen levels on some of the key enzymes of BER in brain and liver mitochondria suggests changes in mtAPE1 activity are related to specific translocation of the enzyme from the cytosol into the mitochondria probably due to oxidative stress changes as a consequence of changes in estrogen levels.
Mitochondria, Estrogen and Female Brain Aging
The mitochondrial dysfunction in the aging brain is described and the estrogen-dependent actions on the mitochondrial activity are discussed, including recent evidence of the estrogen—brain-derived neurotrophic factor and estrogen—sirtuin 3 (SIRT3) pathways, as well as their potential implications during female aging.
Anti-Apoptotic and Antioxidant Activities of the Mitochondrial Estrogen Receptor Beta in N2A Neuroblastoma Cells
The presence of estrogen receptor beta in mitochondria render N2A cells more resistant to staurosporine- and H2O2-induced apoptotic stimuli, rendering mtERβ a promising therapeutic target for mitochondrial dysfunction-associated degenerative diseases.

Estrogen and Mitochondrial Function in Disease
The cell and receptor specific effects of estrogen on mitochon - drial structure, function, and cell death under normal physiological conditions and in the context of cardiovascular disease, inflammation, neurodegeneration, and cancer are reviewed.
Role of Sex Hormones on Brain Mitochondrial Function, with Special Reference to Aging and Neurodegenerative Diseases
This review of studies that describe the modifications of brain mitochondrial function and of steroid levels associated with physiological aging and with neurodegenerative diseases will be placed on describing and discussing recent findings concerning the concomitant study of mitochondrial function.


Age-related changes in the expression of ER-β mRNA in the female rat brain
Age-related changes in estrogen receptor beta in rat hypothalamus: a quantitative analysis.
There are age-related changes in ER beta cell number that are region specific; this expression is not altered by estrogen replacement; and a subset of ER beta-positive cells coexpresses NR1.
Mitochondrial localization of estrogen receptor β
It is demonstrated that ERβ is localized to mitochondria, suggesting a role for mitochondrial ERβ in estrogen effects on this important organelle.
Mitochondrial localization of estrogen receptor beta.
It is demonstrated that ERbeta is localized to mitochondria, suggesting a role for mitochondrial ERbeta in estrogen effects on this important organelle.
Estrogen's Effects on Mitochondrial Gene Expression: Mechanisms and Potential Contributions to Estrogen Carcinogenesis
The estrogen‐dependent presence of ERβ and ERα within mitochondria of HepG2 and MCF‐7 human breast tumor cells is demonstrated, suggesting that the ERs may act as transcription factors directly involved in the regulation by E2 of mtDNA transcription.
Estrogen Increases Mitochondrial Efficiency and Reduces Oxidative Stress in Cerebral Blood Vessels
Novel findings suggest that vascular protection by E2 is mediated, in part, by modulation of mitochondrial function, resulting in greater energy-producing capacity and decreased reactive oxygen species production.
Estrogen and Aging Affect the Subcellular Distribution of Estrogen Receptor-α in the Hippocampus of Female Rats
The data suggest that the decreased responsiveness of hippocampal synapses to estrogen in aged animals may result from age-related decrements in ER-α levels and its subcellular localization vis-à-vis the synapse.
Progesterone and estrogen regulate oxidative metabolism in brain mitochondria.
The ovarian hormones progesterone and estrogen have well-established neurotrophic and neuroprotective effects supporting both reproductive function and cognitive health. More recently, it has been
