The growth response of BG-1 ovarian carcinoma cells to estradiol, 4OH-tamoxifen, and tamoxifen: evidence for intrinsic antiestrogen activation.

The influence of estrogen (E) and antiestrogen (AES) on the in vitro growth of BG-1 ovarian carcinoma cells, which express steroid receptors was examined (K. R. Geisinger, T. E. Kute, M. J.
