Tamoxifen citrate is used as an antiestrogen with potent anti-cancer and PKC inhibitory activities. Tamoxifen Citrate functions as an estrogen receptor antagonist in breast tissue. Tamoxifen Citrate is an agonist towards this receptor in tissues of the endometrium. Tamoxifen Citrate inhibits DNA synthesis and transcription by recruiting co-repressors, which stop estrogen from interacting with genes. When combined with PAX2, Tamoxifen Citrate can inhibit the proliferation of ERBB2. It is also a high affinity activator of the GPR30 receptor. Tamoxifen Citrate is an activator of Estrogen Receptor.
