Transgenic mice expressing GFP under the control of the ERα promoter has been generated. GFP-positive neurons were observed in areas previously reported to express ERα mRNA, and GFP signals mostly overlapped with ERα immunoreactivity. Targeting of ERα gene by adeno-associated virus-mediated small hairpin RNA expression induced GFP in the medial preoptic area, suggesting a negative feedback mechanism in which ERα controls expression of the ERα gene itself.
