Sex Difference in 17-beta Estradiol Regulation of Akt Signaling with Estrogen Receptor Alpha Activation
MetadataShow full item record
There is evidence of a sex difference in the incidence and outcome of Alzheimer's disease and stroke. Females have a better outcome than males. However when women reach menopause, this neuroprotection in females is lost. The loss of neuroprotection in menopause suggests that E2 (estradiol) regulates this sex difference in neuroprotection. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that there is a sex difference in 17 beta-estradiol regulation of Akt signaling with Estrogen Receptor Alpha activation in prenatal neurons.
