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)
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)
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)
Analyses of steroid hormone receptors were performed using a dextran-coated charcoal technique in cytosolic preparations from 40 cases of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and 10 normal human prostates. Binding data were calculated according to Scathchard. In all BPH specimens, receptors for the synthetic androgen methyltrienolone (MT) were found (mean(More)
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)
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)
Hormonal therapy is the dominating form of treatment for prostatic carcinoma. The majority of cases (80%) are well controlled for varying times with this regimen. However, thus far there have been no adequate methods to predict in which cases hormonal therapy is of less benefit. Measurement of cancer tissue content of intracellular hormone receptors(More)
