Estrogen and progesterone receptor isoforms expression in the stomach of Mongolian gerbils
Date:10/31/2008

We have previously shown that E2 and P4 have clear and distinct effects on inflammatory response and gastric epithelial changes during early H. pylori infection. Recently, Ohtani et al., have shown a protective role of E2 administration in H. pylori-infected InGas mice. Other studies have demonstrated that E2 and P4 have anti-ulcerative effects in murine gastric mucosa. ER and PR have been reported in human, mouse and rat stomach. However, there is no information to date of their expression and regulation in Mongolian gerbil stomach.

Ovariectomized adult female gerbils were subcutaneously treated with E2, and E2+P4. Uteri and stomachs were removed, the latter were cut along the greater curvature, and antrum and corpus were excised. Proteins were immunoblotted using antibodies that recognize ER-alpha, ER-beta, and PR-A and PR-B receptor isoforms. Tissues from rats treated in the same way were used as control.

Specific bands were detected for ER-alpha (68 kDa), and PR isoforms (85 and 120 kDa for PR-A and PR-B isoforms, respectively) in uteri, gastric antrum and corpus. We could not detect ER-beta isoform. PR isoforms were not regulated by E2 or P4 in uterus and gastric tissues of gerbils. ER-alpha isoform content was significantly down-regulated by E2 in the corpus, but not affected by hormones in uterus and gastric antrum. We have detected ER-alpha and both PR isoforms in gerbil gastric antrum and corpus. In the antrum, none of the receptors was regulated by E2 and P4, but in gastric corpus we observed a down-regulation by E2. Thus, our results show that ER-alpha regulation also depends on the type of cells present in the mucosa. The mechanisms involved in the lack of regulation of PR in gerbil stomach, as well as the differential regulation of ER-alpha by E2 deserve further research. The presence of ER-alpha and PR isoforms in gerbil stomach suggests that E2 and P4 actions in this organ are in part mediated by their nuclear receptors.
