We have determined that a significant incidence of specific high affinity receptors for androgen (AR), estrogen (ER), and glucocorticoid (GR) is present in normal adult human lung and bronchogenic carcinoma cytosols. In contrast, a limited number of tumor cytosols bound progesterone. Binding characteristics for each class of steroid hormones were similar to those reported for other steroid-responsive normal and neoplastic tissues. ER was evenly distributed between squamous cell and… CONTINUE READING
