CHO-K1 cells were stably transfected using the AR and the luciferase reporter gene regulated by the hormone response element (HRE) present in themousemammary tumor virus (MMTV) promoter.The system has a high sensitivity (0.1 nmol/L) for androgens such as testosterone and can distinguish androgenic and antiandrogenic activities.

The mouse mammary tumor virus (MMTV) is known to cause mammary carcinoma in C3H and Strong A strains of mice.
This consideration pushed some authors to try to resolve the dilemma, through a genome-wide association meta-analysis [71] showing three well-identified genes, which, if mutated by SNPs, seems to be associated with endometriosis: WNT4 encodes for wingless-type MMTV integration site family, member 4, and is important for the development of the female reproductive tract [164] and steroidogenesis [165]; VEZT encodes vezatin, an adherens junction transmembrane protein that is down regulated in gastric cancer [166]; GREB1 encodes growth regulation by estrogen in breast cancer 1, an early response gene in the estrogen regulation pathway involved in hormone dependent breast cancer cell growth [167].For an accurate overview of the genetic variants reported in this chapter, refer to Table 1.
The mouse version, known as mouse mammary tumor virus, or MMTV, is passed from mother to offspring through breast milk.
El efecto de las hormonas sobre la replicacion de los retrovirus comenzo a despertar gran interes desde el descubrimiento de la estimulacion por glucocorticoides de la replicacion y liberacion del virus del tumor mamario de raton (MMTV) describiendose un elemento de respuesta hormonal en el genoma del virus que se pudo situar en la region LTR (Smoller et al, 1961).
Functional ROR1 ligands have remained unknown, though secreted proteins of the wingless-type MMTV integration site(Wnt) family have recently been proposed as ligand candidates (3), (4) and Wnt5a was shown to bind Rorl (5).Ten years after identification of ROR1 (1), gene expression profiling of B cell malignancies on a genomic scale displayed RORI overexpression in leukemic B cells of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) (6), (7)

A headline on MMTV asserts that "O'Reilly Supports Rep King's Islamic Extremism Hearings: 'You've Got to Get a Handle on It'." The language of Islamic extremist has infected the US congress.
