Estrogens and changes in heart physiology linked

Scientists have created zebrafish mutants in four different receptors — found inside or on the surface of cells — that respond to estrogens, and they have used the mutants to help unravel a novel mechanism of estrogen action on heart physiology. Broader use of the mutants may have significant implications for studies of estrogenic environmental endocrine disruptors. (Mehr in: Cancer News — ScienceDaily)
