  1. * Are presented in this table only authenticated MM (or at least well-characterized) cell lines indexed in [49]. In all cases, MM cell lines were treated in vitro with micromolar concentrations of E2 varying from 0.5 μM to 50 μM; various techniques were used to quantify cell proliferation: [3H]-thymidine incorporation, MTS reduction assay, cell number counting after trypan blue exclusion.
