Application

β-Estradiol has been used:
  • for the in vitro maturation of bovine cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs)
  • as a supplement in in vitro maturation medium (IVM), which is used as a control medium
  • in estrogen-induction assay

Biochem/physiol Actions

The major estrogen secreted by the premenopausal ovary. Estrogens direct the development of the female phenotype in embryogenesis and during puberty by regulating gene transcription and, thus, protein synthesis. It also induces the production of gonadotropins which, in turn, induce ovulation. Exposure to estradiol increases breast cancer incidence and proliferation.
