Sex steroid hormones, the estrous cycle, and rapid modulation of glutamatergic synapse properties in the striatal brain regions with a focus on 17β -estradiol and the nucleus accumbens

STEROIDS, 201.

By: S. Proano n, C. Miller n, A. Krentzel n, D. Dorris n & J. Meitzen n

author keywords: Estradiol; Sex differences; Estrous cycle; Nucleus accumbens; Estrogen receptors
TL;DR: There is strong evidence regarding estradiol action upon glutamatergic synapse function in female NAcs MSNs and call for more research regarding other hormones and striatal regions. (via Semantic Scholar)

ER alpha stimulation rapidly modulates excitatory synapse properties in female rat nucleus accumbens core

Miller, C. K., Krentzel, A. A., & Meitzen, J. (2023, February 6). NEUROENDOCRINOLOGY, Vol. 2.

By: C. Miller n, A. Krentzel n & J. Meitzen n

TL;DR: Findings extend the understanding of the neuroendocrinology of the NAcc and implicate ERα as a primary target for future studies and provide evidence that activation of ERα is sufficient for inducing changes in mEPSC frequency and is a likely candidate underlying the estradiol-induced changes observed during the estrous cycle.

No detectable changes in anxiety-related and locomotor behaviors in adult ovariectomized female rats exposed to estradiol, the ER beta agonist DPN or the ER alpha agonist PPT

HORMONES AND BEHAVIOR, 152.

By: C. Miller n & J. Meitzen n

author keywords: Estradiol; Sex; Locomotion; Anxiety; Estrogen receptor
MeSH headings : Rats; Female; Animals; Humans; Estradiol / pharmacology; Estradiol / physiology; Receptors, Estrogen; Estrogen Receptor beta / agonists; Estrogen Receptor alpha / agonists; Anxiety / drug therapy; Nitriles; Ovariectomy
TL;DR: Two experiments are tested in which the hypothesis that anxiety-related behaviors would decrease after ERβ activation and locomotor behaviors would increase after ERα activation are tested, and the persistence of these behavioral effects are assessed by varying the timing of behavioral testing.

Interactions of the estrous cycle, novelty, and light on female and male rat open field locomotor and anxiety-related behaviors

PHYSIOLOGY & BEHAVIOR, 228.

By: C. Miller n, A. Halbing n, H. Patisaul n & J. Meitzen n

author keywords: Estrous cycle; Locomotor and anxiety-related behavior; Open-field; Novelty; Light; Sex differences
MeSH headings : Animals; Anxiety; Behavior, Animal; Estrous Cycle; Estrus; Female; Light; Male; Rats
TL;DR: The open field test is used to disassociate differences in behavior resulting from each of these factors by testing the hypothesis that locomotor and anxiety-related behaviors differ between estrous cycle phases in female rats and that novelty and light exposure concurrently influence these behaviors in both female and male rats.

Metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype 5 (mGlu(5)) is necessary for estradiol mitigation of light-induced anxiety behavior in female rats

PHYSIOLOGY & BEHAVIOR, 214.

By: C. Miller n, A. Krentzel n, H. Patisaul n & J. Meitzen n

author keywords: Estradiol; Metabotropic glutamate receptor 5; Female; Anxiety; Estrogen
MeSH headings : Animals; Anxiety / prevention & control; Estradiol / pharmacology; Estrogen Antagonists / pharmacology; Excitatory Amino Acid Antagonists / pharmacology; Female; Light; Locomotion / drug effects; Ovariectomy; Pyridines / pharmacology; Rats; Receptor, Metabotropic Glutamate 5 / metabolism
TL;DR: Novel findings indicate that mGlu5 activation is necessary for estradiol mitigation of anxiety-related behaviors induced by an acute stressor. (via Semantic Scholar)
