Regulation of breast cancer cells by hormones and growth factors : effects on proliferation and basement membrane invasiveness
Thompson, Erik W., Martin, M. B., Saceda, M., Clarke, R., Brunner, N., Lippman, M. E., & Dickson, R. B. (1989) Regulation of breast cancer cells by hormones and growth factors : effects on proliferation and basement membrane invasiveness. Hormone Research, 32(Supp 1), pp. 242-249.
The current understanding of the regulation of breast cancer cell proliferation and invasiveness by hormones and growth factors is reviewed. It has been shown that polypeptide growth factors are involved in hormone-independent breast cancer, and are sometimes oestrogen-regulated in hormone-responsive models. Basement-membrane invasiveness, relating to the metastatic potential of these cells, is also stimulated by oestrogen in hormone-dependent models, elevated in hormone-independent models, and is growth factor sensitive. Further understanding of the differential effects of growth factors on breast cancer cell proliferation and invasiveness should facilitate better therapeutic exploitation of regulation at this level.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
