Mechanisms of estrogen action on the proliferation of MCF-7 human breast cancer cells in an improved culture medium.


The effects of 17 beta-estradiol and tamoxifen (TAM) on the proliferation of responsive MCF-7 and unresponsive HBC-4 human breast cancer cells were studied in a defined culture medium containing insulin (2 micrograms/ml), transferrin (2 micrograms/ml), ethanolamine (2 microM), and selenite (25 nM).
