Figure 2

Immunohistochemical localization of ERα in hpg mice. Examples of immunohistochemical localization of ERα in the pituitary gland (upper panels) or testis of hypogonadal mice (hpg, left panels) or age-matched wild-type mice (+/+, right panels). Note that many anterior pituitary cells express nuclear ERα immunoreactivity in both hpg and +/+ mice. ERα-ir is abundant in the Leydig cells (lc) and peritubular myoid cells (pt) in the testis of hpg mice, and is also present in some Sertoli cells (sc) in wild-type mice. Bottom left panel shows a control study in which the primary antiserum was omitted, the section is from a hpg testis. All photomicrographs were taken at the same magnification so the 20 μm scale bar in top left panel applies to all panels
