  1. Rohmann K, Schlinger B, Saldanha C. Subcellular compartmentalization of aromatase is sexually dimorphic in the adult zebra finch brain. Dev Neurobiol. 2007;67:1-9 pubmed publisher
  2. Wynne R, Walters B, Bailey D, Saldanha C. Inhibition of injury-induced glial aromatase reveals a wave of secondary degeneration in the songbird brain. Glia. 2008;56:97-105 pubmed
    ..In the zebra finch, injury-induced estrogen provision may decrease reactive gliosis and severely dampen the WSD, suggesting that songbirds are powerful models for understanding the role of glial aromatization in secondary brain damage. ..
  3. Wynne R, Maas S, Saldanha C. Molecular characterization of the injury-induced aromatase transcript in the adult zebra finch brain. J Neurochem. 2008;105:1613-24 pubmed publisher
    ..Alternatively, injury-induced aromatase transcription may be silenced under constitutive conditions. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report that documents the sequence of inducible aromatase in any vertebrate...
  4. Walters B, Saldanha C. Glial aromatization increases the expression of bone morphogenetic protein-2 in the injured zebra finch brain. J Neurochem. 2008;106:216-23 pubmed publisher
    ..Songbirds may be excellent models towards understanding the role of local estrogen synthesis and its downstream mechanisms on neuroprotection and repair...
