英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Sixty to seventy percent of all primary human breast cancers are estrogen-dependent and express both estrogen (ER) and progesterone receptors (PR). Whereas expression of the two naturally occurring PR isoforms, PR-A and PR-B, is close to equimolar in normal human tissues, the ratio of the two receptors varies extensively in tumors. This is important since the two PR are functionally distinct and have differential repressor effects on ER. The PR isoform content may, therefore, affect the outcome of endocrine therapies targeted at ER. Study of PR isoforms is difficult because the two receptors are co-expressed in cells under estradiol stimulation. We have engineered four sets of T47D human breast cancer cells that, independent of estrogen: (i) express only PR-A; (ii) express...
