Recent advances have suggested that steroid hormones such as estrogens, and gut microbiota might synergize to influence obesity, diabetes, and cancer. We discuss recent knowledge of the interactions between estrogens and gut microbiota, and new insights that might offer new approaches to influence this crosstalk and improve metabolic outcomes. Link
Estrogen and Microbiota Crosstalk: Should We Pay Attention?
- Non-Nuclear Estrogen Receptor Activation Improves Hepatic Steatosis in Female Mice.
- Estrogen receptor-α and aryl hydrocarbon receptor involvement in the actions of botanical estrogens in target cells.
- Design of pathway preferential estrogens that provide beneficial metabolic and vascular effects without stimulating reproductive tissues
- Systems Biology of Metabolic Regulation by Estrogen Receptor Signaling in Breast Cancer
- Dietary licorice root supplementation reduces diet-induced weight gain, lipid deposition, and hepatic steatosis in ovariectomized mice without stimulating reproductive tissues and mammary gland
