Selective ERα activation disrupts sex organ differentiation and induces expression of vitellogenin II and very low- density apolipoprotein II in Japanese quail embryos

Abstract

1 The Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) is a widely-used model species for studying the roles 2 of steroid hormones in avian sex differentiation. The aim of the present study was to elucidate 3 the significance of estrogen receptors alpha and beta (ER and ER) in normal sex 4 differentiation of the reproductive organs in the Japanese quail and in… (More)
