  1. 1. Expression and function of vascular estrogen receptors alpha and beta

    Author : Min Liang; Kärlfysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetologi; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; ubiquitin-proteasome pathway; MIP-2; MCP-1; iNOS; estrogen receptor knockout; estrogen receptor; aorta; estrogen;

    Abstract : Estrogen receptors (ER) are expressed not only in classical target organs for estrogen like breast and uterus, but also in male reproductive system as well as in non-reproductive organs such as brain, liver and bone. The functions of ER are quite well known in reproductive organs but less information is available regarding their function in vascular tissue. READ MORE

  2. 2. Erythropoietin receptor in growth control and anti-estrogen resistance of estrogen receptor positive breast cancer

    Author : Susann Reinbothe; Avdelningen för translationell cancerforskning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; tamoxifen resistance; proliferation; PI3k pathway; Breast cancer; erythropoietin receptor; estrogen receptor;

    Abstract : The main function of Erythropoietin (EPO) and its receptor (EPOR) is the stimulation of erythropoiesis. Therefore, recombinant human EPO (rhEPO) is used to treat anemia in cancer patients, but some studies have reported that rhEPO treatment might promote tumor progression. Additionally, EPOR expression has been detected in various cancer forms. READ MORE

  3. 3. Estrogen receptor alpha and beta in breast cancer - gene expression profiles and clinical implications

    Abstract : Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women in the Western world with about 10% of women developing breast cancer during their lifetime, of which one third will eventually succumb to the metastatic form of the disease. Breast cancer arises from the epithelial cells of the breast mammary gland, but the mechanisms involved in tumor initiation, progression, and metastasis are still not fully understood. READ MORE

  4. 4. The role of estrogen receptor alpha in the regulation of bone and growth plate cartilage

    Author : Anna E Börjesson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : estrogen receptor α; bone; growth plate; estrogen;

    Abstract : Estrogens are important endocrine regulators of skeletal growth and maintenance in both females and males. Studies have demonstrated that the estrogen receptor (ER)-α is the main mediator of these estrogenic effects in bone. Therefore, estrogen signaling via ERα is a target both for affecting longitudinal bone growth and for bone remodeling. READ MORE

  5. 5. Muscles, Estrogen, and Bone

    Abstract : Sweden has one of the highest incidences of osteoporotic fractures in the world. A more sedentary lifestyle is one of several proposed reasons for the increase in osteoporosis seen in the developed countries. READ MORE
