A growing number of estrogen receptor beta (ER beta) splice variants are reported. Several of these have been discovered in testis, but with few exceptions little is known about their cellular localization. The aim of this study was to identify and elucidate the mRNA expression pattern of the different ER beta splice variants in human testicular cells. Northern analysis was performed on whole testis and fractions enriched in germ cells from untreated men and from estrogen-treated men undergoing… CONTINUE READING
