Wild-type erbB-2/neu transgenic mice were used to study the interactions between tamoxifen and dietary phytoestrogens (or isoflavones) by dose and form in vivo. Mice were randomized to one of four dietary formulas and implanted with an 8-week continuous-release tamoxifen or placebo pellet at 8 weeks of age. In placebo-treated mice, soy meal diet (but not(More)
INTRODUCTION Co-expression of several receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs), including erbB2 and erbB3, is frequently identified in breast cancers. A member of the RTK family, the kinase-deficient erbB3 can activate downstream signaling via heterodimer formation with erbB2. We studied the expression of RTK receptors in mammary tumors from the wild-type (wt) rat(More)
Increasing evidence suggests molecular interactions between erbB2 and other receptor tyrosine kinases, and estrogenic compounds and their cognate receptors. We have recently reported that downregulation of erbB3 abrogates erbB2-mediated tamoxifen resistance in breast cancer cells. On the basis of these data, we hypothesized that erbB3 may play a major role(More)
