The aim of the study was to compare the localisation of oestrogen receptors alpha and beta (ER alpha and ER beta) in the human and rat epididymides. In the human epididymis the immunoexpression for ER alpha was detected in the nuclei of the caput epithelial cells, while positive reaction for ER alpha was observed in the nuclei of the cauda epithelial cells. In the rat epididymis, immunoexpression for ER alpha showed nuclei of the caput and cauda epithelial cells. However, the reaction was… CONTINUE READING
