P-cadherin is up-regulated by the antiestrogen ICI 182,780 and promotes invasion of human breast cancer cells.

P-cadherin expression in breast carcinomas has been associated with tumors of high histologic grade and lacking estrogen receptor-alpha, suggesting a link between these proteins. In the MCF-7/AZ breast cancer cell line, blocking estrogen receptor-alpha signaling with the antiestrogen ICI 182,780 induced an increase of P-cadherin, which coincided with induction of in vitro invasion. Retroviral transduction of MCF-7/AZ cells, as well as HEK 293T cells, showed the proinvasive activity of P-cadherin, which requires the juxtamembrane domain of its cytoplasmic tail. This study establishes a direct link between P-cadherin expression and the lack of estrogen receptor-alpha signaling in breast cancer cells and suggests a role for P-cadherin in invasion, through its interaction with proteins bound to the juxtamembrane domain.[1]
