Induction of uterine calbindin-D9k through an estrogen receptor-dependent pathway following single injection with xenobiotic agents in immature rats.


Various environmental chemicals, both natural and synthetic, are believed to act as endocrine disruptors (EDs) in mammals. In this study, a new in vivo model of immature rats was used to explore the induction of calbindin-D9k (CaBP-9k) following a single injection of EDs. In a time-dependent experiment, immature rats at postnatal day 16 were treated with… (More)
