Effect of β-estradiol on type I and type III collagen gene expression. Type I and III collagen mRNA was quantified after 24 h of stimulation with 0.25 ng/ml β-estradiol in female CFs (white bars), male CFs (light grey bars), female IHFs (dark grey bars) and male IHFs (black bars). Data are presented as means +/- standard deviation.
