Tamoxifen (Tam) has been used experimentally to treat boys with gynecomastia and girls with McCune‐Albright syndrome. This drug was recently shown to inhibit the growth of cultured fetal rat metatarsal bones and thus might also affect bone growth in vivo. Four‐week‐old Sprague‐Dawley rats were gavaged daily with vehicle alone (peanut oil), Tam (40 mg/kg/d; 1 or 4 wk), or estradiol (40 μg/kg/d; 4 wk). Five of the 10 rats in each group were killed after 4 wk and the other five after 14 wk of… Expand
Resveratrol Treatment Delays Growth Plate Fusion and Improves Bone Growth in Female Rabbits
TLDR
It is concluded thatTrans-resveratrol has the potential to improve longitudinal bone growth and was associated with a delay of growth plate fusion resulting in increased final length and accompanied by a profound suppression of VEGF and laminin expression. Expand
Impaired Body Weight and Tail Length Gain and Altered Bone Quality after Treatment with the Aromatase Inhibitor Exemestane in Male Rats
TLDR
Exemestane treatment during sexual maturation did not augment linear growth in male rats, but caused impaired body weight and tail length gain and osteopenia, and may have adverse effects on bone, brain and reproduction. Expand
Regulation of bone growth via ligand-specific activation of estrogen receptor alpha.
TLDR
The data show that estrogenic effects on bone growth and growth plate maturation are mainly mediated via ERα, and may have direct implications for the development of new and more selective treatment modalities of extreme tall stature using selective estrogen receptor modulators that may have low side effects than high-dose E2 treatment. Expand
Catch-up growth after dexamethasone withdrawal occurs in cultured postnatal rat metatarsal bones.
TLDR
It is concluded that the phenomenon of catch-up growth after Dexa treatment is intrinsic to the growth plate and primarily mediated by an upregulation of chondrocyte proliferation. Expand
EFFECT OF SELECTIVE ESTROGEN RECEPTOR MODULATORS (SERMS) ON GROWTH PLATE CARTILAGE
TLDR
The studies described here demonstrate that SERMs have the potential to influence growth plate cartilage in such a manner as to affect the longitudinal bone growth, and in ovariectomized rabbits, resveratrol improves both axial and appendicular bone growth. Expand
Skeletal and Uterotrophic Effects of Endoxifen in Female Rats
TLDR
The results demonstrate that endoxifen elicits beneficial effects on bone in ovary‐intact rats and protects against bone loss following ovariectomy and that it elicits partial agonistic effects on the uterus and skeleton in ovariectomized animals. Expand
Assessment of a nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitor, letrozole, in juvenile rats.
TLDR
The observed effects in juvenile rats were considered predictable and primarily related to the mechanism of action of letrozole upon estrogen synthesis. Expand
A shortened tamoxifen induction scheme to induce CreER recombinase without side effects on the male mouse skeleton
TLDR
This work optimized a protocol for tamoxifen-induced CreER gene deletion in mice without off-target effects on bone and male reproductive organs and decreased AR mRNA levels efficiently and specifically in the nervous system. Expand
Antifibrotic effect of tamoxifen in a model of progressive renal disease.
TLDR
Tamoxifen exhibits antifibrotic effects in the L-NAME model of hypertensive nephrosclerosis, likely through the inhibition of TGF-β1, suggesting that it may have therapeutic use in CKD treatment. Expand
Estrogen signaling in growth plate cartilage.
It is well known that sex steroids, in particular estrogens, play an important role in longitudinal bone growth during puberty. High doses of estrogen therapy can reduce the final height of anExpand

The Effect of Tamoxifen on Bone Metabolism and Skeletal Growth is Different in Ovariectomized and Intact Rats
TLDR
The findings indicate that TAM exerts an effect of estrogen agonist on bone metabolism and skeletal growth in OVX rats, however, it does not affect them in intact rats. Expand
Tamoxifen stimulates cancellous bone formation in long bones of female mice.
Selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) have been developed as a means of targeting estrogen's protective effect on the skeleton in the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis. Although it isExpand
17 beta-estradiol stimulates cancellous bone formation in female rats.
TLDR
Results suggest that stimulation of cancellous bone formation is a physiological action of E2 in the rat, and Stimulation of bone formation by estrogen showed a similar pattern of dose-responsiveness to recognized physiological targets of E1: suppression of longitudinal growth and uterine growth. Expand
Tamoxifen induces permanent growth arrest through selective induction of apoptosis in growth plate chondrocytes in cultured rat metatarsal bones.
TLDR
A novel mechanism of tamoxifen-induced apoptosis in chondrocytes, involving the activation of caspases and the FasL/Fas pathway, which diminishes the potential for bone growth is described. Expand
Effects of estrogen on growth plate senescence and epiphyseal fusion
TLDR
The data suggest that epiphyseal fusion is triggered when the proliferative potential of growth plate chondrocytes is exhausted; and estrogen accelerates the programmed senescence of the growth plate, thus causing earlier proliferative exhaustion and consequently earlier fusion. Expand
Raloxifene acts as an estrogen agonist on the rabbit growth plate.
TLDR
It is concluded that raloxifene acts as an estrogen agonist on the growth plate, accelerating growth plate senescence and thus hastening epiphyseal fusion. Expand
Growth retardation induced by dexamethasone is associated with increased apoptosis of the growth plate chondrocytes.
TLDR
It is concluded that apoptosis is one mechanism involved in growth retardation induced by glucocorticoids, and premature loss of resting/proliferative chondrocytes by apoptosis could contribute to incomplete catch-up seen after prolonged glucoc Corticoid treatment. Expand
Comparison of tamoxifen and testosterone propionate in male rats: differential prevention of orchidectomy effects on sex organs, bone mass, growth, and the growth hormone-IGF-I axis.
TLDR
Tamoxifen prevented ORX effects on bone and cholesterol in male rats without affecting sex organs or PRL and might be useful for men who must avoid androgens. Expand
Preliminary in situ identification of estrogen target cells in bone
TLDR
It is suggested that osteocytes are major skeletal estrogen target cells and may be involved in coordinating the response of surface bone cells to the hormone, and further that chondrocytes may beinvolved in estrogen‐induced epiphyseal growth plate fusion. Expand
The role of estrogen in bone growth and maturation during childhood and adolescence

  • The Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
  • 1997
TLDR
It is concluded that the pubertal growth spurt of both sexes is driven primarily by estrogen, and that the more rapid epiphyseal maturation of prepubertal girls (vs boys) may be explained by their higher estradiol levels. Expand
