In fibroblasts, c-Myc is both necessary and sufficient for G1-S phase progression (58) and activation of conditional alleles of c-myc is followed by the activation of both cyclin D1-Cdk4 and cyclin E-Cdk2 (59–61). Rapid decreases in c-myc mRNA and protein levels are observed in response to a variety of antiestrogens in both in vivo and in vitro models (21,63,84,85), being apparent within 30 min (Fig. 9A). Therefore in addition to cyclin D1 and p21, c-Myc may be a major target molecule through which antiestrogen mediates cell-cycle control.

Cdk2 is the second major CDK acting in the G1 phase and its total cellular activity, as measured in Cdk2-immunoprecipitates, appeared to be unaffected by antiestrogen treatment between 2 and 6 h but decreased starting at 8 h (62,63). This profound inhibition of Cdk2 activity might result in pRB hypophosphorylation at late times and contribute to the sustained antiestrogen blockade of cellcycle progression. However, cyclin A/Cdk2 is the predominant form of this complex and when the subcomponent of Cdk2 associated with cyclin E was examined, a more complex picture emerged as significant decreases in kinase activity were seen prior to 12 h (Fig.
