Progesterone induces adult mammary stem cell expansion
Reproductive history is the strongest risk factor for breast cancer after age, genetics and breast density. Increased breast cancer risk is entwined with a greater number of ovarian hormone-dependentExpand

Association analysis identifies 65 new breast cancer risk loci
Breast cancer risk is influenced by rare coding variants in susceptibility genes, such as BRCA1, and many common, mostly non-coding variants. However, much of the genetic contribution to breastExpand

Loss of Co-ordinate Expression of Progesterone Receptors A and B is an Early Event in Breast Carcinogenesis
Progesterone receptor (PR) mediates the effects of progesterone in mammary tissues and plays a crucial role in normal breast development and in breast cancer. PR proteins are expressed as twoExpand

Progestin regulation of cellular proliferation.
I. Introduction THE control of cellular proliferation is known to involve a delicate balance between the effects of different regulatory molecules including hormones and growth factors which provide,Expand

Prediction of Breast Cancer Risk Based on Profiling With Common Genetic Variants
Background: Data for multiple common susceptibility alleles for breast cancer may be combined to identify women at different levels of breast cancer risk. Such stratification could guide preventiveExpand

Colocalization of progesterone receptors A and B by dual immunofluorescent histochemistry in human endometrium during the menstrual cycle.
The human progesterone receptor (PR) is expressed as two isoforms, PRA and PRB, that function as ligand-activated transcription factors. In vitro studies suggest that the isoforms differ functionallyExpand

Imatinib Disposition and ABCB1 (MDR1, P‐Glycoprotein) Genotype
The aim of this study was to explore the impact of individual variation in drug elimination on imatinib disposition. Twenty‐two patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumor or chronic myeloidExpand

Expression and regulation of retinoic acid receptors in human breast cancer cells.
Retinoic acid is known to inhibit mammary carcinogenesis in rodents and to inhibit proliferation and steroid hormone receptor gene expression in human breast cancer cells. Since these effects areExpand

Characterization of progesterone receptor A and B expression in human breast cancer.
The human progesterone receptor (PR) is a ligand-activated nuclear transcription factor that mediates progesterone action in target tissues. Two PR proteins, PR-A (M(r) 81,000-83,000) and PR-B (M(r)Expand
