Estrogen modulation of avian osteoclast lysosomal gene expression.


We have previously demonstrated that avian osteoclasts contain high levels of 17 beta-estradiol (17 beta E2) receptors and respond to 17 beta E2 treatment with a dose-dependent decrease in in vitro resorption of [3H] proline-labeled bone particles. To more accurately assess the influence of 17 beta E2 on osteoclastic activity, the specificity of estrogen… (More)
