The isolation and characterization of estradiol-fatty acid esters in human ovarian follicular fluid. Identification of an endogenous long-lived and potent family of estrogens.


The estradiol-fatty acid esters are highly potent and long-lived estrogens that were first isolated and identified from in vitro biosynthetic experiments (Mellon-Nussbaum S., Ponticorvo, L., Schatz, F., and Hochberg, R. B. (1982) J. Biol. Chem. 257, 5678-5684). Other studies have indicated that these esters exist endogenously, but the evidence is indirect… (More)
