Identification and characterization of estrogen and progesterone receptors from the oviduct of the American alligator (Alligator mississippiensis).


A protein extract prepared from the egg shell fiber-secreting region of the oviduct of Alligator mississippiensis was assayed for the presence of receptors for estrogen and progesterone. In the presence of [3H]-estradiol-17 beta, the extract contained an estrogen-binding activity which reached equilibrium at 25 degrees C in 1 h. Scatchard analysis… (More)
