About 50-64% of human breast cancers express receptors for GnRH-I. Direct antiproliferative effects of analogs of GnRH-I on human breast cancer cell lines have been shown. They are at least in part mediated by antagonizing growth promoting effects of estradiol, epidermal growth factor (EGF) or insulin-like growth factor. Recently, expression of a putative(More)
BACKGROUND The majority of human endometrial and ovarian cancer cell lines express receptors for GnRH. Their proliferation is time- and dose-dependently reduced by GnRH-I and its superagonistic analogues. Recently, we have demonstrated that, in human endometrial and ovarian cancer cell lines except for the ovarian cancer cell line EFO-27, the GnRH-I(More)
We have recently demonstrated that the antiproliferative activity of GnRH-II on human endometrial and ovarian cancer cell lines is not mediated through the GnRH-I receptor. A functional receptor for human GnRH-II has not yet been identified. In this study, we have generated a polyclonal antiserum to the putative human GnRH-II receptor using a peptide(More)
The majority of human endometrial and ovarian cancers express receptors for GnRH type I (GnRH-I). Their proliferation is time- and dose-dependently reduced by GnRH-I and its analogs. GnRH-I analogs activate a phosphotyrosine-phosphatase (PTP) and inhibit EGF-induced mitogenic signal transduction. Recently we found that GnRH type II (GnRH-II) and its agonist(More)
