The ovarian hormone progesterone is essential for normal breast development and function. However, it is also implicated in breast cancer development. Progesterone signals through two nuclear receptors [progesterone receptor A (PRA) and progesterone receptor B (PRB)], which display striking differences in transcriptional activity when analyzed separately.(More)
Tropomyosin 1 (TM1) is downregulated in a number of transformed cell types, and exogenous expression of TM1 can restore actin organisation and reverse cellular transformation. We find that TM1 is also downregulated in human neuroblastoma cell lines, correlating with increasing malignancy. However, exogenous TM1 does not restore actin cytoskeleton(More)
