The involvement of estrogen in pain has been investigated in many ways. However the specific role played by estrogen receptors remains elusive. Estrogen receptors alpha and beta mediate different physiological functions. For example, estrogen receptor beta is more closely related to non-reproductive effects than the alpha subtype is. To verify the… CONTINUE READING
