Description

Packaging

1, 5 g in glass bottle

100, 250 mg in glass bottle

Preparation Note

Tamoxifen citrate salt dissolves in methanol at 50 mg/ml to yield a clear, colorless solution.

Application

Tamoxifen has been used for analyzing its effects on radiation sensitivity and steroid receptor content in human breast cancer cells. It has also been used for studying the accumulation of triacylglycerol in hepatic tissues of female rats. Furthermore, studies have reported that environmental magnetic fields can block antiproliferative functions of tamoxifen in human breast cancer cells.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Protein kinase C inhibitor. Induces apoptosis in human malignant glioma cell lines. Tamoxifen and its metabolite 4-hydroxytamoxifen are selective estrogen response modifiers (SERMs) that act as estrogen antagonists in mammary gland. Blocks estradiol-stimulated VEGF production in breast tumor cells.
