We mapped the cellular expression of estrogen receptor (ER) alpha and ERbeta mRNAs in the male reproductive system of the rat during development and adulthood by in situ hybridization. The expression patterns of ERalpha mRNA in the gonad, efferent duct and initial segment of the epididymis during the perinatal period were essentially similar to those of the adult: ERalpha mRNA signals were expressed most intensely in the epithelia of the efferent ducts and initial segment of the epididymis, and… CONTINUE READING
