  • The function of the second nuclear estrogen receptor, estrogen receptor beta (ERbeta), in the brain is largely unknown. The present study tested whether 1) ERbeta in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of the hypothalamus has a direct role in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis-mediated stress function, and 2) whether corticosterone (CORT) can regulate ERbeta gene expression in the PVN in the intact, cycling female rat. To test the first hypothesis a pure estrogen receptor antagonist… CONTINUE READING
