Vitellogenins (Vitellogenin)

Phospholipoglycoproteins produced in the fat body of egg-laying animals such as non-mammalian VERTEBRATES; ARTHROPODS; and others. Vitellogenins are secreted into the HEMOLYMPH, and taken into the OOCYTES by receptor-mediated ENDOCYTOSIS to form the major yolk proteins, VITELLINS. Vitellogenin production is under the regulation of steroid hormones, such as ESTRADIOL and JUVENILE HORMONES in insects.

07/01/2005 - "In this study, the (anti)estrogenic potential of several environmental chemicals were compared in an array of in vitro test systems comprising: (i) competitive binding to estrogen receptors derived from the human breast cancer cell line MCF-7 (hER) and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) (rtER), (ii) a proliferation assay with MCF-7 cells (E-SCREEN), and iii) induction of vitellogenin (rtVtg) in isolated rainbow trout hepatocytes. "
04/01/1993 - "To define a possible regulatory role of RXR beta regarding estrogen-responsive transcription in breast cancer cells, RXR beta and a reporter gene driven by the vitellogenin A2 ERE were transfected into estrogen-treated MCF-7 cells. "
09/26/1986 - "In the human breast cancer cell line MCF-7, we observe estrogen induction of the stable transfected Xenopus vitellogenin A2 gene. "
12/01/2006 - "Accordingly, this article further examined the effects of the endogenous vitellogenin B1 estrogen responsive promotor on the SXR- and PPAR-gamma-modulated ER transactivation in Hep G2, and either dose-dependent or single dose effects of SXR, PPAR-gamma, and CAR in two different breast cancer cell lines and the ovarian-derived cell line respectively, on the ER-mediated transactivation of the synthetic (4ERE)-tk-luciferase reporter. "
09/01/2005 - "The ability of the ligands to inhibit transactivation was assessed using a reporter gene constructed with the ERE of the vitellogenin gene promoter (ERE(v)-tk-Luc) transiently transfected into the human estrogen receptor-positive MCF-7 breast cancer cell line. "
