The estrogen receptor α (ERα) mRNA (amol/μg DNA), estrogen receptor β (ERβ) mRNA (amol/μg DNA), and the ratio of ERα mRNA and ERβ mRNA, 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.
