Masters Thesis 2003

  1. 1. Expression of Cyclin D1, p27 and p21 in<br />MCF-7 cells treated with 4-OH <br />Tamoxifen in the presence<br />of growthfactors<br />Anna Merca<br />Department Of Oncology<br />Division of Biomedicine and Surgery<br />Faculty of Health Sciences<br />Linköping University<br />
  2. 2. Aims of the Study<br />General Aim: <br />To determine the effect of 4-OH Tamoxifen (4-OH TAM) on cell cycle regulators in MCF-7 cells in the presence of growth factors such as heregulinβ1(HRGβ1) and/or estradiol (E2). <br />Specific Aim:<br />To determine the expression of Cyclin D1, p27 Kip1 and p21 Waf1/CIP1 in MCF-7 cells.<br />

  19. 19. Conclusions<br />HRGβ1-stimulated expression of Cyclin D1 and p21 in MCF-7 cells wasunaffected by addition of E2 and/or 4-OH TAM.<br />E2-induced increase in expression of Cyclin D1 wasobserved in all treatment periods (24, 48, and 72h), addition of 4-OH TAM attenuated CyclinD1 levels.<br />E2-induced increase in expression of p27 wasobservedonly after 48 and 72h treatment periods.<br />HRGβ1-stimulated expression of p27 was not affected by addition of 4-OH TAM at 48 and 72h. <br />Addition of E2 to HRGβ1 attenuated the levels of p27 at 48 and 72h treatments.<br />Addition of 4-OH TAM in increasingconcentration to all treatmentslessened the percentage of cells going to S-phase of the cell cycle.<br />
  20. 20. Future Experiments<br />To confirm the current results:<br />repeat western blots on Cyclin D1, p27, and p21,<br />repeat the Vindeløv Method for Cell Cycle Analysis,<br />Additional Experiments:<br />determine Cyclin E expression by western blotting<br />assess apoptosis using M30 antibody<br />
