Up-regulation of the estrogen receptor by triiodothyronine in rat pituitary cell lines.

Abstract

The effects of thyroid hormones on estrogen receptor (ER) levels in four different rat pituitary clonal cell lines designated as MtT/Se, SM, S and E, were investigated. When T3 was added at 10(-7) M, a significant increase in ER was evident after 9 h with maximum levels reached after 24-48 h in MtT/Se (270% of control), MtT/SM (160%) and MtT/S (140%). No… (More)
