Role of ERα in Mediating Female Uterine Transcriptional Responses to IGF1


ABSTRACT: Estrogen (E2) signaling through its nuclear receptor, estrogen receptor α (ERα) increases insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) in the rodent uterus, which then initiates further signals via the IGF1 receptor (IGF1R). Directly administering IGF1 results in similar biological and transcriptional uterine responses. Our studies using global ERα-null mice demonstrated a loss of uterine biological responses of the uterus to E2 or IGF1 treatment, while maintaining transcriptional responses to IGF1. To address this discrepancy in the need for uterine ERα in mediating the IGF1 transcriptional vs. growth responses, we assessed the IGF1 transcriptional responses in PgrCre+Esr1f/f (called ERαUtcKO) mice, which selectively lack ERα in progesterone receptor (PGR) expressing cells, including all uterine cells, while maintaining ERα expression in other tissues and cells that do not express Pgr. Additionally, we profiled IGF1-induced ERα binding sites in uterine chromatin using ChIP-seq. Herein, we explore the transcriptional and molecular signaling that underlies our findings to refine our understanding of uterine IGF1 signaling and identify ERα-mediated and ERα-independent uterine transcriptional responses. Defining these mechanisms in vivo in whole tissue and animal contexts provides details of nuclear receptor mediated mechanisms that impact biological systems and have potential applicability to reproductive processes of humans, livestock and wildlife. Overall design: Three replicates for each treatment group. In cases where two sample replicates are submitted, one of the three replicates was excluded as an outlier based on PCA analysis.
