Estrogen receptor alpha and beta expression in the porcine ovary.

In order to investigate the expression of estrogen receptor alpha (ERalpha) and estrogen receptor beta (ERbeta) in the porcine ovary, in situ hybridization was applied. Specific ovine ERalpha and bovine ERbeta cDNA probes were labeled with [-32S]dCTP. In the porcine ovary, positive signals for ERbeta were found in both granulosa and theca cells of all types of antral follicles as well as in the corpora lutea at all stages of regression. ERalpha mRNA was limited exclusively to the granulosa cells of preovulatory follicles and was present in a few cells of early corpora lutea. Thus, we showed differential expression of ERalpha and ERbeta at the mRNA level. Large antral follicles and early corpora lutea are the site, where both forms of estrogen receptor are expressed.[1]
