Effects of estrone, estradiol, and estriol on hormone-responsive human breast cancer in long-term tissue culture.

The effects of estrone, estradiol, and estriol on MCF-7 human breast cancer are compared. In this estrogen-responsive cell line, all three estrogens are capable of inducing equivalent stimulation of amino acid and nucleoside incorporation. Estriol is capable of partially overcoming antiestrogen inhibition with Tamoxifen (lCl 46474), even when antiestrogen… CONTINUE READING
