Induction of a novel histone deacetylase 1/c-Myc/Mnt/Max complex formation is implicated in parity-induced refractoriness to mammary carcinogenesis.


Refractoriness to carcinogen-induced increases in epithelial cell proliferation is a very important characteristic of parous mammary glands. We found that N-methyl-N-nitrosourea (MNU)-induced proliferative burst in the mammary ductal epithelium was blocked in parous glands but not in age-matched virgin (AMV) glands. The inhibition of the proliferative burst… (More)
