The effects of α-zearalanol and estradiol benzoate on expression of c-myc, c-fos and epidermal growth factor receptor mRNAs in breast tissues implanted into nude mice.

Abstract

This study was designed to evaluate the effects of a novel phytoestrogen, α-zearalanol (α-ZAL), and estradiol benzoate (B-E₂), on c-myc, c-fos, and EGFR expression in normal human breast tissues implanted into nude mice. A xenograft-model, pieces of normal human breast tissue implanted subcutaneously into 9-10-week-old athymic nude mice, was established… (More)
