[Mitochondrial estrogen receptor β inhibits non-small cell lung cancer cell apoptosis via interaction with Bad].

OBJECTIVE To explore the molecular mechanisms by which mitochondrial estrogen receptor β (ERβ) suppresses non-small cell lung cancer cell apoptosis induced by apoptotic stimulations. METHODS The mitochondrial localization of ERβ in non-small cell lung cancer cell lines A549 and 201T was determined using immunofluorescence and Western blotting. The changes… CONTINUE READING
