Abstract [en]

Sex steroids play a dominant role in breast carcinogenesis by still largely unknown mechanisms. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) have been extensively studied in the context of matrix biology but it is not known if sex steroids affect MMPs in breast cancer. MMPs degrade extracellular matrix components enabling tumor cell invasion and metastasis, but may also regulate the bioavailability of a variety of biologically active molecules such as anti-angiogenic fragments, which may be beneficial for the host. This study shows that estradiol and tamoxifen regulate MMP-2 and MMP-9 as well as TIMP-1 and TIMP-2 in ER + PR + human breast cancer cells. The main finding was a significant effect of tamoxifen exposure, which increased intracellular and secreted protein levels whereas estradiol induced a significant decrease. The overall net effect of these alterations resulted in increased MMP-2/MMP-9 activity by tamoxifen treatment, which also significantly increased extracellular endostatin levels. We conclude that estradiol and tamoxifen have the ability to modulate MMP-2/MMP-9 activity, and endostatin levels in human breast cancer in vitro. The results suggest a possible role of MMP modulation associated with a generation of anti-angiogenic fragments in the therapeutic effect of tamoxifen in breast cancer.

Abstract [en]

Sex steroids are inevitable in women. However, long-term exposure to sex steroids increases the risk of breast cancer. A complete understanding of sex steroid control of the breast and how it relates to breast cancer risk is still lacking. Angiogenesis and proteolytic enzyme activity are crucial for the process by which tumors evolve into a vascularized, invasive phenotype. Matrix metalloproteinases are potent matrixdegrading enzymes that affect several steps in tumor progression including angiogenesis. In the female reproductive organs, sex steroids regulate angiogenesis and MMP activity, yet little is known how sex steroids affect these crucial events in normal and malignant breast tissue.

This thesis elucidates a link between sex steroids, MMP activity, and angiogenesis. It is shown that estradiol down-regulates while tamoxifen up-regulates the protein expression and activity of MMP-2 and MMP-9 in human breast cancer cells in vitro and in human breast cancer xenografts in vivo. The results further suggest that a biological consequence of this regulation may be modulation of tumor angiogenesis. The net effect of adding tamoxifen to estradiol treatment was an increase in extracellular levels of the endogenous angiogenesis inhibitor endostatin and decreased levels of the tumor promoter TGF-β1 compared to estradiol treatment only. This was accompanied by reduced vasculature and decreased tumor growth. Similarly, a regulatory effect of estradiol and tamoxifen on endostatin generation was observed in normal human breast tissue by whole-tissue culture and microdialysis in human breast tissue in situ.

In conclusion, the results presented in this thesis suggest previously unknown mechanisms of action of estradiol and tamoxifen in breast cancer and in normal human breast tissue, and novel means by which estradiol may tip the scale to favor angiogenesis. This knowledge may be important for the understanding of sex steroid dependent breast carcinogenesis and in the future development of tissue-specific preventive as well as therapeutic strategies against breast cancer.
