Table 2 Quantification of immunohistochemistry for ERα, ERβ and AR in the efferent ductules of control and ICI 182,780 treated rats.

From: The antiestrogen ICI 182,780 decreases the expression of estrogen receptor-alpha but has no effect on estrogen receptor-beta and androgen receptor in rat efferent ductules
