VMN Neurons Coexpress PR and SRC-1: Laser Confocal Microscopy

PR SRC-1 PR and SRC-1
Using a double-label immunofluorescent technique, we have found that the nuclear receptor coactivator, Steroid Receptor Coactivator-1 (green cells) and progestin receptors (red cells) are coexpressed in a sub-population of neurons (yellow cells) in the female rat ventromedial hypothalamus, a brain region involved in hormone-dependent female reproduction.
