Abstract To explore mechanisms related to hormone resistance, three resistant variants of the MPA mouse breast cancer tumor model with low levels of progesterone receptor (PR) isoform A (PR-A)/high PR-B expression were developed by prolonged selective pressure with antiprogestins. The resistant phenotype of one tumor line was reversed spontaneously after several consecutive passages in syngeneic BALB/c mice or by 17-beta-estradiol or tamoxifen treatment, and this reversion was significantly associated with an increase in PR-A expression. The responsive parental tumors disclosed low activation of ERK and high activation of AKT; resistant tumors on the other hand, showed the opposite, and this was associated with a higher metastatic potential, that did not revert. This study shows for the first time in vivo a relationship between PR isoform expression and antiprogestin responsiveness, demonstrating that, whereas acquired resistance may be reversed, changes in kinase activation and metastatic potential are unidirectional associated with tumor progression.
