Expression of BTC increases proliferation of vaginal epithelia. (A) Hematoxylin and eosin staining of vaginal epithelium from OVX rats treated with vehicle (V), 17β-estradiol (E2), betacellulin with normal histology (BTC) and betacellulin with abnormal histology (BTC-abn). (B) Rat BTC expression levels from microarray analysis at the 6 hour, 3 day and 5 day timepoints. (C) Human BTC expression levels from qRT-PCR analysis versus patient number.
