Evidence for sexual dimorphism of estrogen receptors in hypothalamus and thymus of neonatal and immature Wistar rats.

Abstract

It is hypothesized that the rat thymus is sexually differentiated. To begin testing this, we used the 5-day-old rat, whose hypothalamus is sexually differentiated during this period. Cytosolic estrogen receptors (ER) were measured in cytosols prepared from the brain, thymus and uterus of Wistar rats at 5, 18 and 30 days post-partum. ER concentrations were… (More)
