|Abstract:||Abstract This is the first report on estrogen-dependent growth of human-derived colon carcinoma cells. Under selected conditions, growth of subconfluent Caco-2 cells is triggered by estradiol. Cell growth is estradiol concentration dependent, with maximal effect occurring at about 0.4 nM. Growth is prevented by two different antiestrogens: the partial agonist, OH-Tamoxifen, and the pore antagonist, ICI 182,780. The growth effect is specific for estradiol since other hormonal steroids tested do not affect cell growth. The amount of estradiol receptor in subconfluent Caco-2 cells, detected by blot with monoclonal antibodies directed against the receptor as well as estradiol binding assays, is similar to that of the classical estradiol-responsive, human mammary cancer-derived MCF-7 cells. Estradiol treatment of subconfluent Caco-2 cells rapidly and reversibly stimulates four important intermediates in a signal transduction pathway that is known to trigger cell proliferation: two members of the large family of c-src-related tyrosine kinases, c-src and c-yes, and two serine/threonine kinases, the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinases, erk-1 and erk-2. Tyrosine kinases activated by estradiol are up-stream MAP kinases and Caco-2 cell proliferation. In fact, genistein, a specific tyrosine kinase inhibitor, abolishes the estradiol stimulatory effect on both erk-2 activity and cell proliferation. Our findings show that in subconfluent Caco-2 cells, the estradiol-receptor complex activates the c-src, c-yes/MAP kinase pathway and activates growth. This could have important implications for the understanding of human intestinal carcinogenesis.|
