Essential Role of Polo-like Kinase 1 (Plk1) Oncogene in Tumor Growth and Metastasis of Tamoxifen-Resistant Breast Cancer.


The most common therapy for estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer is antihormone therapy, such as tamoxifen. However, acquisition of resistance to tamoxifen in one third of patients presents a serious clinical problem. Polo-like kinase 1 (Plk1) is a key oncogenic regulator of completion of G2-M phase of the cell cycle. We assessed Plk1 expression in five… (More)
