The female sex hormone, oestrogen, plays a central role in breast cell proliferation in both the normal and malignant state. It controls transcription from several genes, including that for the progesterone receptor, and in endometrial tissue, via this receptor, it controls the gene for the enzyme oestrogen sulfotransferase. This enzyme may control the level of the oestrogen receptor by sulfurylating free oestradiol. To study the mode of transcriptional control exercised by oestrogen, bovine… CONTINUE READING
