Mammary gland morphology and responsiveness to regulatory molecules following prenatal exposure to diethylstilbestrol.

Abstract

Female ACI rats were exposed to diethylstilbestrol (DES) in utero to evaluate the effects on the peri-pubertal mammary gland with respect to 1) mammary gland morphology, 2) sensitivity to natural and synthetic estrogens, and 3) sensitivity to endogenous epidermal growth factor (EGF). Pregnant rats were injected with vehicle (sesame oil) or DES (total dose… (More)
