Direct up-regulation of estrogen receptor by triiodothyronine in rat pituitary tumor MtT/F84.

Abstract

To investigate a possible effect of triiodothyronine (T3) on the regulation of estrogen receptor, estrogen dependent rat pituitary tumor, MtT/F84, was studied in rats which received surgical thyroidectomy (Tx) or were given propylthiouracil (PTU) and were supplemented with T3. In T3 loaded rats, the grafted tumor showed high estrogen receptor levels (160… (More)
