Antiestrogens (AE), such as tamoxifen, selectively increase the production of a secreted protein of 37,000 mol wt (Mr) in estrogen receptor-containing human breast cancer cells (MCF-7, but not in estrogen receptor-negative MDA-MB-231 cells), and the production of this protein by AE is inhibited by concomitant estradiol (E) treatment. Likewise, E increases the production of a 32,000 Mr secreted protein whose synthesis is inhibited by AE. Proteins were detected by [35S]methionine and [35S… CONTINUE READING
