The uterine wet weight (g), luminal epithelium (LE) height (μm), growth hormone receptor (GH-R) mRNA (amol/μg DNA), and insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) mRNA (amol/μg DNA), in the ovariectomized (OVX) controls and in the rats treated with estradiol (E2), tamoxifen (TAM), raloxifene (RAL) or ICI182780 (ICI). Box and whisker plots representing the median value with 50% of all data falling within the box. The whiskers extend to the 5th and 95th percentiles. Boxes with different letter designations are significantly different (p < 0.05), and the boxes with an * are significantly different to the OVX control group.
