Progestin has been shown to have both stimulatory and inhibitory effects on the expression of insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 (IGFBP-1) in human endometrial cells. In this study, progestin was found to reduce levels of secreted IGFBP-1 and IGFBP-1 messenger RNA and IGFBP-1 promoter activity after stably transfecting a progesterone receptor (PR; B form) expression vector into HEC-1B cells. Deletion analysis of the IGFBP-1 promoter revealed that PR specifically inhibited promoter… CONTINUE READING
