The estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P) receptors (ER and PR) were studied in normal human breast epithelial (HBE) cells and fibroblasts cultured separately in our laboratory from surgical reductive mammoplasty samples. Immunocytochemical studies were performed on cytospun cells using the anti-ER antibody H222 Sp gamma and the anti-PR antibodies JZB39 and KD68. A specific immunostaining was observed for ER and PR in HBE cells. This immunostaining was nuclear, varying from cell to cell in… Expand
Progesterone effect on cell growth, ultrastructural aspect and estradiol receptors of normal human breast epithelial (HBE) cells in culture
TLDR
In the HBE cell culture system and in long-term treatment, P and R5020 appear predominantly to inhibit cell growth, both in the presence and absence of E2. Expand
Estrogen and antiestrogen actions on transforming growth factorβ (Tgfβ) in normal human breast epithelial (HBE) cells
We have previously shown that estradiol (E2) increases the growth of normal human breast epithelial (HBE) cells and the antiestrogen 4-hydroxytamoxifen (4-OHT) inhibits estrogen-inducedExpand
Estradiol stimulates c-myc proto-oncogene expression in normal human breast epithelial cells in culture
TLDR
The c- myc proto-oncogene is expressed in normal HBE cells, as in breast cancer cells, and E2 stimulates c-myc expression which, therefore, may partly mediate the growth-promoting effect of E2. Expand
Glucocorticoid receptor activity discriminates between progesterone and medroxyprogesterone acetate effects in breast cells
TLDR
In normal luminal breast cells and in breast cancer cells, P4 and MPA combined with E2 treatment have opposing mitogenic effects due to GR, and the consequences of MPA glucocorticoid potencies as well as the importance of GR in breast tissue merit a reappraisal. Expand
Ovarian hormone receptors in human mammary stromal cells
TLDR
The authors detect estrogen receptor alpha protein and progesterone receptor protein in extralobular fibroblasts and estrogen receptoralpha protein in adipocytes and suggest that regulation of the gland by ovarian hormones involves similar mechanisms in both species. Expand
Estrogen Responsiveness and Control of Normal Human Breast Proliferation
TLDR
It is suggested that theER-negative proliferating cells represent a precursor or stem cell population that differentiates toER-containing, nonproliferative cells and act as 'estrogen sensors' and transmit positive or negative paracrine growth signals to the precursor cells depending on theprevailing hormonal environment. Expand
Effects of estrogen, epidermal growth factor, and transforming growth factor-alpha on the growth of human breast epithelial cells in primary culture.
TLDR
It is suggested that E2 can exert effects on HBEC growth via modulation of the cells' response to EGF, which acted in a synergistic manner in 50% of the samples examined. Expand
Expression of cytosolic sulfotransferases in normal mammary epithelial cells and breast cancer cell lines.
TLDR
Understanding the regulation of ST activity in normal breast cells and normal breast cell lines will improve knowledge of the role of sulfation in breast cancer and provide a model with which to study the mechanism of action of estrogens in mammary cells. Expand
Ulipristal acetate does not impact human normal breast tissue.
TLDR
Analysis of PR and GR reporter gene transactivation and their respective endogenous target genes indicated that UPA exerted anti-progestational and anti-glucocorticoid activity in both types of cells with a more pronounced effect in cancer cells. Expand
Isolation of a stromal cell line from an early passage of a mouse mammary tumor line: A model for stromal parenchymal interactions
TLDR
A murine mammary tumor cell line, MC4‐L4, and after 15 passages, a spindle‐shaped population became evident, making them an excellent model to be used in studies of epithelial–stromal interactions in the context of hormone responsiveness in hormone related tumors. Expand

Tamoxifen and hydroxytamoxifen isomers versus estradiol effects on normal human breast cells in culture.
TLDR
The presence andEstradiol dependence of ER have been demonstrated in HBE cells, which constitute a fruitful model for the study of hormone/antihormone actions, and in these normal cells, estradiol stimulates growth, whereas TAM and the 4OHTAM isomers are potent inhibitors of cell multiplication, as they are in breast cancer cell lines in culture. Expand
Frequency and distribution of estrogen receptor-positive cells in normal, nonlactating human breast tissue.
TLDR
The human mammary gland contained a small but distinct population of ER-positive cells, comprising approximately 7% of the total epithelial cell population from all biopsies. Expand
Localization of progesterone receptor with monoclonal antibodies to the human progestin receptor.
TLDR
PR was localized to the nuclei of all progesterone target tissues even under conditions where the vast majority of the receptor is unoccupied by steroid, suggesting that the unoccupied as well as the steroid-occupied form of PR are predominantly nuclear proteins, as observed previously for estrogen receptor and rabbit PR. Expand
Immunocytochemical study with monoclonal antibodies to progesterone receptor in human breast tumors.
TLDR
Mouse hybridomas secreting monoclonal antibodies against rabbit uterine progesterone receptor (PR) have been prepared and differences in the intensity and distribution of staining within a section were observed, suggesting heterogeneity of the PR content of breast cancer cells. Expand
Progesterone receptor distribution in the human endometrium. Analysis using monoclonal antibodies to the human progesterone receptor.
TLDR
Two monoclonal antibodies to the human progesterone receptor (PR), JZB39 and KD68, were used in determining the immunohistochemical distribution of PR in the human endometrium throughout the menstrual cycle and after menopause, indicating that both the steroid-occupied and -unoccupied forms of human progestersone receptor, like rabbit and guinea pig PR, and estrogen receptor, is a nuclear protein.

Estrogens stimulate cell proliferation and induce secretory proteins in a human breast cancer cell line (T47D).
TLDR
It is demonstrated that E2 is able to directly stimulate the proliferation of human epithelial breast cancer cells after having stimulated the synthesis of approximately 60,000 dalton proteins released into the medium. Expand
Progestin effect on cell proliferation and 17 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase activity in normal human breast cells in culture.
TLDR
E2 stimulated proliferation of human breast epithelial cells in culture, whereas the progestin R5020 inhibited cell multiplication and favored differentiation, and the antiprogesterone RU486 had a biphasic effect acting both as progest in agonist and partial antagonist. Expand
Cytoplasmic and nuclear estradiol and progesterone receptors in human endometrium.
TLDR
The changes of total estradiol and progesterone receptor sites and of their respective subcellular distributions seem to depend upon the plasma levels of both hormones and to follow the same cause and effect relationships as those demonstrated experimentally in laboratory animals. Expand
Progesterone receptors in breast fibroadenomas.
Abstract Cytosol progesterone receptors (P-R) were measured in breast fibroadenomas from 88 women, and their levels were compared to the tumor epithelial cell density and estradiol receptor levelsExpand
Estradiol and progesterone receptors in human breast fibroadenomas.
TLDR
The existence of ER and PR in breast fib Roadenomas and the variations in their levels during the menstrual cycle or under hormonal treatment provide valuable information on the hormone dependency of breast fibroadenoma. Expand
