A protein in rat ventral prostate cytosol that binds estramustine [estradiol 3-bis(2-chloroethyl)carbamate) was purified to homogeneity by using chromatography on DEAE-cellulose, Sephadex G-100 (superfine), octyl-Sepharose (CL-4B, and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The estramustine-binding protein was found to have a Mr of 46,000 as estimated by gel(More)
The tissue distribution of [3H]estramustine, the dephosphorylated metabolite of estramustine phosphate (Estracyt), in the male rat was compared to that of [3H]estradiol 30 min and 2 hr following i.p. administration. In contrast to estradiol, estramustine was found to be efficiently concentrated in the ventral prostate gland by a soluble protein. The binding(More)
Supply relationships are generally of a long-term nature in the commercial vehicle industry. Closer ties and enlarged scope of supplier involvement make it difficult to judge efficient costs. Under a regime of incomplete contracts, trust plays an important role for achieving efficiency, but lack of information and uncertainty also foster opportunistic(More)
The [3H]estramustine-binding macromolecule in human prostate was partially characterized using a number of chromatographic procedures. Although human estramustine-binding protein (HEMBP) had a marked tendency to aggregate in several systems, a molecular weight of about 54,000 was determined by gel filtration on Sephacryl S-200 Superfine and high-performance(More)
Prostatic secretion protein (PSP) or estramustine-binding protein is a major protein in rat ventral prostate. The amount of PSP was measured per mg of cytosolic protein at different ages and after castration or administration of sex hormones. The amount of PSP is relatively low before puberty (25 microgram/mg of protein) but increases at about 28 days of(More)
Estramustine phosphate (Estracyt) was used in the treatment of 154 patients with carcinoma of the prostate in stage IV. Sixty-three patients were given Estracyt from the outset (primary treatment group) and 91 had previously received some other endocrine therapy (secondary treatment group). All of the patients were observed for more than one year. The drug(More)
Prostatic secretion protein (PSP) is a major component of rat prostatic cytosol, and this protein is also found in the prostatic fluid. Purified PSP was found to inhibit the nuclear uptake of the [3H]methyltrienolone-receptor complex in vitro. Furthermore, purified PSP inhibited the binding of this androgen-receptor complex to DNA-cellulose. It is suggested(More)
Rat mammary tumours induced by 7,12-dimethylbenz(a)anthracene had a higher concentration of 3H and 14C than muscle after injection of estramustine phosphate labelled with 3H in the oestrogen moiety and 14C in the alkylating moiety. Thin-layer chromatography showed that dephosphorylated estramustine phosphate was present in the tumours but no free(More)
