VASCONCELLOS, C. A.; SEPULVEDA, B. N.  y  PACHECO, C. C.. Presence of Estrogen and Progesterone Receptors and CBG in the Female Tract of Sheep and Dogs: Comparative Immunochemistry Study. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2006, vol.24, n.3, pp.457-461. ISSN 0717-9502.

The sexual steroid receptors of the genital tract of the female has importance since on them the hormones responsible for their development and morphofuncional changes act. Due that in their control mechanism one of the factors to be kept in mind is the possible differences among the diverse species. The objective of our study was to compare in two different species sheep (O) ( n=6) and canine (P) ( n=6) the presence of receptors of estrogens (RE), progesterone (RP) and the presence of CBG in ovary, oviduct and uterus of female prepúberes (O:n=3; Pn=·3) and mature: (O:n=3; Pn=·3) We use H-E tint and and inmunocito chemistry according to technique of Stenberger. The results revealed: in both species of animals during the estral cycle: Inmunorreactivity (RI) positive marked for estrogens in uterus, oviduct and ovary being comparatively much more numerous RE in dog oviduct that in sheep. In both animals in anestro RE was negative or light in uterus, without evidenced of their presence in other organs. The RP varied according to the stage of the cycle not showing remarkables differences among the species. In the prepuber female sheep RE and RP were detected while in dogs they were not evidenced. The CBG showed positivity in the tract of both animals during the cycle and it was negative in both prepuber species We concludes that differences exist especially in prepuber female where the presence of RE and RP are detectable in sheep and no detectable in dogs, being further the comparatively presence of RE in dog oviduct in cycle more marked that in sheep in the same stage.
