Trachemys scripta elegans In conclusion, we found no effects of estradiol treatment on immune system development in the red-eared slider despite using multiple doses, varying timing of steroid administration, and quantifying multiple branches of the immune system. While it is possible that other experimental approaches may allow us to detect effects of maternal estradiol on immune system development, our current findings suggest these effects may be subtle, if present at all. Further study is needed on the development and maturation of the immune system of sliders in order to understand the role estrogen and other steroids play in the immune system.
