• A novel transcript variant of human G-protein coupled estrogen receptor

    1 month ago - By Springer

    Abstract
    The G-protein coupled estrogen receptor mediates short-term non-genomic effects of estrogen in diverse cell types and tissues. According to the NCBI nucleotide database, three variants of GPER are known. They are NM 001505.2 , NM 001039966.1 , and NM 001098201.1. Investigations on GPER expression are key to understand its physiological and pathological roles. However, most studies on GPER mRNA expression have considered total GPER mRNA expression regardless of the individual variants. The present study is motivated by a novel transcript observed in the UCSC Genome Browser , which...
