Oestradiol-17β and tamoxifen regulate the synthesis of a gross cystic disease fluid protein (GCDFP-15) in T47D human breast cancer cells. Dose-response curves of GCDFP-15 mRNA contents and GCDFP-15 levels in culture media and cells versus hormone or antihormone concentration have been established. Production of GCDFP-15 was increased by oestradiol-17β, tamoxifen and 4-OH tamoxifen. The effect of tamoxifen and 4-OH tamoxifen was greater than the effect of oestradiol-17β. Moreover, oestradiol-17β and 4-OH tamoxifen acted synergystically in enhancing GCDFP-15 release. The strong oestrogenic effect of the antioestrogen tamoxifen in regulating GCDFP-15 may reflect an unusual interaction between the tamoxifen-oestrogen receptor complex and the DNA oestrogen-responsive elements. As oestrogen control of GCDFP-15 depends also on the cell line studied, investigation of GCDFP-15 could extend our knowledge of the possible mechanism of action of oestrogens or antioestrogens.
Journal of Molecular Endocrinology is committed to supporting researchers in demonstrating the impact of their articles published in the journal.
The two types of article metrics we measure are (i) more traditional full-text views and pdf downloads, and (ii) Altmetric data, which shows the wider impact of articles in a range of non-traditional sources, such as social media.
