estrogen-induced

stimulated by high blood levels of estrogen.

estrogen-induced transdifferentation
a persistent high estrogen intake causes male behavior in ewes and secondary sex characters, e.g. mammary gland and teat hypertrophy, in wethers, and changes in the promotion of development of endometrial-type glands in the cervix.
estrogen-induced uroliths
diets high in estrogens thought to contribute to the development of uroliths by increasing the rate of epithelial desquamation in the urinary tract, thus facilitating the formation of a nidus around which concretion of salts can then develop.
