In Vitro Effects of Estradiol on the Aorta of Chickens
Aortas of chickens were incubated during 72 hours with 17α- or with 17β-estradiol and the alkaline phosphomonoesterase activity determined. Paired experiments demonstrated that both isomers are able to enhance the activity of the enzyme in vitro. The possible relation of these results with atherogenesis is discussed.
