Abstract

Estrogen receptor (ER)-beta mRNA splice variants have been identified in human breast tumors as well as normal human and mouse ovarian, uterine and mammary tissues. In both species transcripts deleted in exons 5 or 6, or 5 + 6 have been characterized by RT-PCR followed by cloning and sequencing. In mouse tissues an ER-beta transcript containing 54 nucleotides inserted in frame between exons 5 and 6 was identified. Interestingly, no equivalent of the mouse inserted transcript was detected in any of the four human tissues analyzed.
