Therapies designed to treat hypercortisolism have usually sought to reduce circulating glucocorticoid concentrations, however the local tissue endocrine environment could be an alternative target. The 3beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase Delta5-4 isomerase (3beta-HSD) inhibitor trilostane is of interest, since, although it is only moderately and transiently(More)
Several lines of evidence attest to the existence of alternative ligand binding sites on the oestrogen receptor (ER), including non-competitive inhibition by trilostane or tamoxifen. It is possible that the inhibitory action of conventional oestrogen agonists at high concentrations may indicate that they too interact at alternative ER sites, albeit at low(More)
4-Hydroxy tamoxifen (OHT) and trilostane interact differently with the oestrogen receptor (ER). OHT is a competitive inhibitor whereas trilostane has direct, but non-competitive effects on ER. This study compared the effects of OHT and trilostane, in the presence of 17beta-oestradiol (E2) on gene expression in MCF-7 breast cancer cells using microarrays(More)
