... secretion can be regulated by circulating levels of estradiol. However, the effect of estradiol on CRH neuron excitability is less clear. Here, we show that chronic estradiol replacement following ovariectomy increases two types of potassium channel currents in CRH neurons: fast inactivating voltage-gated...

... resources alter neural systems to stimulate mating behavior. Compared with other females, females that were housed with and explored nest boxes had higher estradiol, higher preproenkephalin (PENK) mRNA and lower levels of D1 and D2 dopamine receptor mRNA in the medial preoptic area (mPOA); a region in which...

Importantly, the percentage change in body mass did not differ significantly between snakes in the hibernation treatments,indicating...

...Maureen J. Devlin; Daniel E. Lieberman SUMMARY Although mechanical loading can stimulate cortical bone growth, little is known about how individual physiology affects this response. This study demonstrates that in vivo variation in estradiol (E 2 )level alters osteoblast sensitivity to exercise...

..., we have examined the influence of the female sex hormone 17 β-estradiol (E 2 ). E 2 was not sufficient to elicit an increase in hepatic zinc concentrations or MT mRNA levels. E 2 administration did, however, result in increased levels of MT in the nuclear fraction as well as overall hepatic MT...
