Abstract—Estrogen receptor (ER) expression has been detected in different tissues, and estradiol-17β treatment protects against experimental transplant arteriosclerosis. In this study, ER-α expression in the rabbit hearts and attached aortas before and after cardiac-aorta allograft transplantation was examined. Ten male New Zealand White rabbits were transplanted with cardiac-aorta allografts from male Dutch Belted rabbits. This transplant arteriosclerosis model uses a 0.5% cholesterol diet and… CONTINUE READING
