This study reports the initial observation of the novel estrogen receptor, ER beta, in human subcutaneous adipose tissue. Human adipose tissue was obtained from various anatomic sites including the subcutaneous depots of lipectomy patients (healthy controls), and from subcutaneous abdominal and breast depots of lean and obese women with breast cancer. ER beta mRNA expression, determined by reverse transcription and polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), was present in each adipose tissue sample… Expand
Demonstration of estrogen receptor subtypes α and β in human adipose tissue: influences of adipose cell differentiation and fat depot localization
A novel ER-subtype, the ER-beta has recently been characterized in various tissues, furthermore five isoforms of the ER-beta are known (ER-beta1--ER-beta5). Using immunoblotting and real- timeExpand
Evidence for functional estrogen receptors α and β in human adipose cells: regional specificities and regulation by estrogens
TLDR
The present study shows that estrogens in vitro increase the AP-1, SP- 1, and estrogen response element DNA binding activities in differentiated but not in confluent preadipocytes, suggesting that ER become functional during the course of adipogenesis. Expand
The sexually dimorphic role of adipose and adipocyte estrogen receptors in modulating adipose tissue expansion, inflammation, and fibrosis.
TLDR
The data suggest that adipose tissue and adipocyte ERα protects against adiposity, inflammation, and fibrosis in both males and females. Expand
Pathways of adipose tissue androgen metabolism in women: depot differences and modulation by adipogenesis.
TLDR
Higher mRNA levels of enzymes synthesizing and inactivating androgens are found in differentiated adipocytes, consistent with higher androgen-processing rates in these cells. Expand
Estrogen receptor protein content is different in abdominal than gluteal subcutaneous adipose tissue of overweight-to-obese premenopausal women.
TLDR
Results indicate that depot specific ER content may be an important underlying determinant of regional effects of estrogen in upper and lower body adipose tissue of overweight-to-obese premenopausal women. Expand
Estrogen receptor status of breast stromal cells
TLDR
The findings of this study reveal a distinct pattern of NR expression that fits with a sustained and increased local estrogen microenvironment in ER-positive tumors, and the discrepancy between mRNA and protein for ERb, and potentially ERa, is an interesting point raised by Booth and colleagues.

Ovarian hormone receptors in human mammary stromal cells
TLDR
The authors detect estrogen receptor alpha protein and progesterone receptor protein in extralobular fibroblasts and estrogen receptoralpha protein in adipocytes and suggest that regulation of the gland by ovarian hormones involves similar mechanisms in both species. Expand
Estrogen receptors in human preadipocytes
TLDR
It is concluded that the effect of estrogen on adipose tissue deposition has a contribution from the direct effect of testosterone on human PAs via ERα, and that ERα but not ERβ is present inhuman PAs. Expand
The expression of oestrogen receptor (ER)- and its variants, but not ER , in adult human mammary fibroblasts
Whilst oestrogen receptor (ER)and ER have been shown to be important in the development of the mammary gland, the cell-specific expression pattern of these two receptors within the human breast isExpand
Estrogen controls lipolysis by up-regulating alpha2A-adrenergic receptors directly in human adipose tissue through the estrogen receptor alpha. Implications for the female fat distribution.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that estrogen attenuates the lipolytic response through up-regulation of the number of antilipolytic alpha2A-adrenergic receptors only in sc and not in visceral fat depots, which offers an explanation how estrogen maintains the typical female sc fat distribution because estrogen seems to inhibit lipolysis only inSc depots and thereby shifts the assimilation of fat from intraabdominal depots to sc depots.

Identification of oestrogen receptors and oestrogen receptor mRNA in human adipose tissue
TLDR
Findings indicate that mature human adipocytes possess ERs and thus, might be an oestrogen‐ responsive tissue and that oestrogens may be acting directly in mature adipocytes via its specific receptor. Expand
Expression of Estrogen Receptor β Messenger RNA Variant in Breast Cancer
Abstract Estrogen receptor (ER) β is expressed in a number of tissues, including the breast. We have recently shown that ER-β mRNA is regulated by estradiol (E2) and that antiestrogens antagonize E2Expand
Obesity, non‐protein‐bound estradiol levels, and distribution of estradiol in the sera of breast cancer patients
TLDR
Results show that breast cancer patients have increased exposure to unbound circulating estradiol and an increased percentage ofEstradiol bound to albumin, which may influence the availability of Estradiol, considering its low binding affinity to albumIn. Expand
Distribution of angiotensin II receptors in rat and human adipocytes.
TLDR
Data indicate site-specific differences in AII receptor number in fat cell membranes from rats and the existence of human adipocyte AII receptors, suggesting that the adipocyte is significant for the peripheral metabolism of components of the renin-angiotensin system. Expand
ERβ: Identification and characterization of a novel human estrogen receptor
TLDR
A novel estrogen receptor (hereinafter referred to as ERβ) was cloned using degenerate PCR primers and revealed that ERβ is expressed in human thymus, spleen, ovary and testis, and the level of transactivation by 17β‐estradiol is higher for ERα than for ERβ, which may reflect suboptimal conditions for ER β at thelevel of the ligand, responsive element or cellular context. Expand
Estrogen receptor expression of benign breast epithelium and its association with breast cancer.
TLDR
ER-positive breast epithelium needs evaluation as a possible risk marker for breast cancer, and adjustment for known risk factors did not change the odds ratio. Expand
Fat tissue: a steroid reservoir and site of steroid metabolism.
TLDR
It is concluded that fat tissue is an important steroid hormone reservoir, that it is the site of active aromatase and 17 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, and that tissue DHEA(S) may have a modulating effect on tissue estrogen production. Expand
Progression of human breast cancer cells from hormone-dependent to hormone-independent growth both in vitro and in vivo.
TLDR
Sublines isolated by in vivo but not in vitro selection are more invasive than the parental cells both in vivo and across an artificial basement membrane in vitro, suggesting as yet unknown tumor-host interactions may be important in the development of an invasive phenotype. Expand
A prospective study on obesity and subcutaneous fat patterning in relation to breast cancer in post-menopausal women participating in the DOM project.
TLDR
It may be that there are differences between characteristics of breast cancer detected at screening and subsequently, which influence the associations between measures of fatness and risk of breastcancer. Expand
Alcohol, height, and adiposity in relation to estrogen and prolactin levels in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
BMI and alcohol use were positively associated with postmenopausal plasma estrogen and estrone sulfate levels, respectively and additional studies are needed to further quantify the relationship between alcohol consumption and plasma hormone levels and to elucidate the physiologic basis for this association.
