The physiological effects of estrogen on the pituitary, including cellular proliferation and regulation of hormone synthesis, are mediated by the nuclear estrogen receptor (ER). The purpose of this study was to determine ontogenetic expression of two types of ERs (ERalpha and ERbeta) in the pituitary using specific antibodies, monoclonal antibody (1D5) for ERalpha and polyclonal antibody generated against ERbeta. First, we confirmed the detection of 66- and 55-kDa bands for ERalpha and ERbeta… CONTINUE READING
