Department of Life Science and Biotechnology, Section of General Physiology, University of Ferrara, Ferrara, Italy
Oxid Med Cell Longev 2013:280850. 2013..We demonstrate that 17-β-estradiol modulates Cxs and Ints as well as ER-β expression induced by HF-EMF, suggesting an influence of both stimuli on trophoblast differentiation and migration...

Dipartimento di Biologia, Sez di Fisiologia Generale, Universita di Ferrara, 44100 Ferrara, Italy
Naunyn Schmiedebergs Arch Pharmacol 370:91-8. 2004..In addition, we suggest that the density of sst2 receptors and/or G(o)alpha proteins may represent the rate-limiting factor for the sst2 receptor-mediated inhibition of AC...
- 17Beta-eEstradiol stimulates arachidonate release from human amnion-like WISH cells through a rapid mechanism involving a membrane receptorSara Fiorini
Department of Biology, University of Ferrara, 44100 I Ferrara, Italy
Endocrinology 144:3359-67. 2003..Our data suggest that 17beta-E(2) stimulates [(3)H]AA release from WISH cells through an apparently nongenomic pathway and interaction with membrane binding sites. These last are, at least in part, similar if not identical to ERbeta...
