The pineal hormone, melatonin, has been shown to inhibit the proliferation of the estrogen receptor alpha (ERalpha)-positive macrophage chemotactic factor (MCF)-7 human breast cancer cells. Previous studies from other systems indicate that melatonin modulates the calcium (Ca2+)/calmodulin (CaM) signaling pathway either by changing intracellular calcium concentration ([Ca2+]i) via activation of its G-protein coupled membrane receptors, or through a direct interaction with CaM. In this study… CONTINUE READING
