  • Estrogen receptor concentrations are higher in the male reproductive tract than in other organs. Brain structure, neuronal organization and behavioral sex differences result from brain conversion of testosterone into estradiol within the brain. Estrogens modulate hormonal secretion at pituitary level and immune function at thymus level. Estrogens promote vasodilatatory and protective effects on the cardiovascular system by acting on the vascular smooth muscle and endothelium. Adult men with… CONTINUE READING
