Membrane-initiated actions of estrogen on the endothelium.


Estrogen-induced rapid, membrane-initiated activation of numerous signal transduction cascades has been shown in animal, cellular and molecular vascular studies, which support the favorable effects of estrogen on vascular structure and function. These effects are mediated by distinct forms of estrogen receptor (ER) alpha. This includes estrogen-stimulated… (More)
