Effects of prenatal treatment with estrogen on mitotic activity of vaginal anlage cells in mice.

Abstract

Female fetuses of C57BL/Tw mice were injected subcutaneously with 50 microgram 17 beta-estradiol on day 17 of fetal life. The treatment was proved to induce ovary-independent proliferation and cornification in the vaginal epithelium in later postnatal life.
