Antiestrogens and ER Compounds with antiestrogenic activity can be classified into two categories: one with pure antiestrogenic activity and others with both agonist and antagonist properties. Tamoxifen—an antiestrogen that is used both as chemopreventive agent and as hormonal therapeutic agent for breast cancer—inhibits ER action [178]. Paradoxically, tamoxifen acts as an estrogen in uterine tissue, and this tissue-specific estrogenic effect is the reason why prolonged tamoxifen therapy increases the risk of uterine 1 Ovarian Hormones: Structure, Biosynthesis, Function, Mechanism of Action, and Laboratory Diagnosis 19 Fig.

Most of the early knowledge about steroid hormone mechanism of action has been derived from in vitro and in vivo binding studies that used radiolabeled estradiol as a ligand [162].
