1985) observed that tumors from breast cancer patients treated with the progestin, lynestrenol, displayed a higher oxydative 17b-HSD activity than those from untreated patients and that this activity was also function of the ER and PR status of the tumor. , 1993). , 1996), are inhibitory agents of 17b-HSD in different hormone-dependent breast cancer cells. This relative effect is indicated in Table 6.

The SULT1E1 enzyme is important in the inactivation of E2 during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle. Pedersen et al. (2002) obtained the crystal structure of the human SULT1E1–PAPS complex. Specifically, the authors observed that the side chain nitrogen of the catalytic Lys (47) interacts with the side chain hydroxyl of Ser (137) and not with the bridging oxygen between the 50 -phosphate and sulfate groups of the PAPS molecule as is seen in the PAP-bound structures. , 1998). , 1994). SULT1E1 is present mainly in the normal breast cell.
Parabens ( p-hydroxybenzoate esters) are a group of preservatives widely used in cosmetics, food, and pharmaceutical products, which can exhibit estrogenic effects in animal models. Prusakiewicz et al. (2007) demonstrate an inhibitory effect of the EST activity present in skin cytosol. Butylparaben, the most potent inhibitor, has an IC50 value of 37 mM. The authors suggest that SULTs inhibition by parabens could stimulate or prolong estrogen signaling cascades by elevating the levels of E2 and E1.
