These responses were equal in magnitude to the maximal effect of estradiol, and they were inhibited by inclusion of the antiestrogen ICI164384. However, when tested in a competitive binding assay, b-HCH did not displace 17-beta-[3H]estradiol from the ER even at a ­concentration that was 40,000-fold higher than the tracer steroid (Steinmetz et al. 1996). These authors suggested that b-HCH stimulation of cell proliferation and gene expression is ER dependent, but its action is not through the classic pathway of binding and activating the ER.
